Who Are We :) Bohio Atabei

                                                                                                                                                                                                  Grandmothers Come Singing Metal Print by Elizabeth Webb

                  Bohio Atabei is a Indigenous Taino women's circle.❤️

Besides welcoming participation from women in any Taino group, Bohio is open to sharing with other Indigenous sisters from relative nations. We have total respect for the elders and women of sister nations. They often are invited  share and the Bohio will always welcome them to our events.

Bohio has a Women's Warrior circle —the 13 Jaguars Society. These are our activists and future leaders who dare to step into the trenches of any and all threats to our people. There is a 4-year cycle of teaching for the Jaguars that consists of the first year of initiation and three years of ongoing teachings from the grandmothers. You must be specially selected to become a Jaguar.

Bohio is also the sponsor for the Route of the Red Tail Hawk Peace and Dignity Journey (PDJ) Caribbean and East Coast route. We are dedicated to the PDJ mission and are the guardians of the Sacred Red Tail Hawk staff of our people.

We have women at our gatherings from different Yukayekes. The Bohio does not discriminate nor does it interfere in the government/leadership of any Yukayeke or organization as we respect their autonomy.

Our circle is geared towards our women working together in honor of our Ancestors, helping each other in rebuilding our communities, exploring our horizons, and thus safeguarding our future. We celebrate in unity our culture with respect for our Spirit and all of Creation.

We own our power to be Taino women. The future of our people we clearly understand depends on our women for we are a matrilineal society. In our sisterhood we work together and gather with each other with love and respect using the wisdom passed on to us by our elders .

The only thing we insist on is that our Taino spirituality is respected. If your religious convictions are grounded in the organized religions of dominant society—a legacy of the conquest—then perhaps the Bohio is not for you.

However you can attend our moon circles and other events as long as you do not attempt to convert and or preach to us or use our circles to promote non Taino practices and beliefs. 
After over 528 years of that, we have had enough.

We welcome our sisters to our circle in the Spirit of our ancestors .
Seneko Kakona 🙏❤️

If You have any questions please email us at bohioatabei@aol.com
or contact one of the grandmothers of our circle on the council.

August 2017 Bat Full Moon.

The energy of the Full Moon is still with us. Keep all of our people in your good thoughts 
This Full Moon we are reaching the end of Bibi Maroyas August cycle. How beautiful is that?
For us this is known as La Luna de Los Murciélagos (Bats Moon) and it will be a Bat Moon until the next new Moon.
Then Bibi Maroya will change her halo of light to put on another one of her 13 headdresses. She does this so we may never forget the teachings she brings us with each new cycle.
It is fitting that we consider this Bat full Moon for like the Bat we need to use our ears to listen more.
Note the Bat’s extra sensory hearing, guides it out of the darkness. They send out sound waves from their mouth or nose. When the sound waves hit an object they produce echoes. The echo bounces off the object and returns to the bats ears..... So be like the Bat Watch what you say as your words will echo and bounce back to you.
Pay attention and hear the voice of earth mother in every living thing and you will find the wisdom each sound will bring. Listen and you will see clearly the road ahead.
Emerge like Bats and spread the seeds of your good thought use them to pollinate the circle of life. Let what emerges from your hearts and souls be the wisdom of right action as well the needed love and understanding we should have towards each other as relatives.

Refrain from hurtful gossip and rumors that can only hurt. Release the need for recognition ,merits and manmade rewards…Just do what you do in a good way for others will speak for you.
Ultimately your reward will be a peaceful Heart and spirit knowing that you gave of your best to your friends, families and even to those who dislike your being.
Love you all  Thank you for being in my life  May the wisdom of Bibi Maroya’s Bat Moon help you always find your way? Abrazotes
