"Cave of the Jagua" has long been the authoritative text on the now extinct Taí no people of the West Indies. In this revised edition, Antonio Stevens-Arroyo reinforces his groundbreaking work with new research and analysis. The volume features updated interpretations of Taí no spirituality, evaluates recent DNA findings among Caribbean people, and offers new evidence that Taí nos were not exterminated in the sixteenth century. This volume will be invaluable to scholars of religion, anthropology, and Latino studies alike.
