I have always read in the history books about how the Spaniards wiped out most if not all of the Taino indians in the DR. But i always personnally noticed upon observation that ALOT of the Dominicans i see on the daily do in fact have an "indio" look to them. I started looking at personal family pictures specially of my grandmother and it could not have hit me harder, the Taino element is closer than we think.

What do you guys think? Am I the only one who notices this?

The African blood is noticeable as well as the European, but i think the Taino element is more easily ignored.

Let me know what you guys think!
