  1. (I apologize if this post is a repeat. I clicked on “post comment”, but my post isn’t showing, so I’m here attempting again).
    I did not find my Tribe on your list. They still exist. I just cannot find an address for them. Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of America. I am a descendent of the Taíno Tribe. My grandmother, who died when my mother was a mere 10 years old was Taíno. My mom was raised by her father whom did not follow a Taíno lifestyle, neither did their other family after my grandmother passed away. No one in either side of the family will give me any information regarding our Tribe and who is still in the Tribe. How can I find information on my family Tribe without info from my family. I’m on my own on this one. My mother is 80 years old now and has dementia, so she cannot remember specifics from her deceased mother and father. She cannot remember their dates of birth nor death. So I’m really at a standstill. I have been trying with since 2016, and still at zero info. I get hints, but the hints do not apply to my family’s Tribe. I took the DNA test last week and mailed it. I don’t know how quick or slow they work to get DNA results to their clients. In the meantime, can anyone give me any tips, advice, anything on how to proceed and where to go being that I do not have the support of my family? Anything will be appreciated. Also, since I’m one to think of every possible scenario on earth, if by any chance the Tribe folded and theirs no one left in the family who is an active Tribe member, being that I’m a direct descendant of my grandmother, would I be able to claim my family’s Tribe and continue where the last family member took off? Would I be able to re-establish my family’s Tribe again if that were the case? If so, how? How does one direct descendent re-establish a debunked Tribe? What’s the process and how do I go about re-establishing our Tribe? Again, I think of every scenario. I’d like to think that they do still exist as my older sister suspects from overhearing other family members conversations. They won’t give us info, but my sister on occasion has overheard conversations, just not enough to give me something to go one. I hope someone here can help me. Thank you for your time. God bless you all.

    Why is it that Mexico and South America tribes are not recognized? Even mixed with Europeans should be recognized.
