This tri-lingual (English, Spanish, and Taino) play by Tekina-eiru Maynard would not have been possible without the help of many Puerto Ricans who have shared their oral and documented history including: Fernando Laboy (Guayanilla), Margie Lacen (Loiza), and archaeologist Juan Rivera (Institute of Puerto Rican Culture), and others.
