Talk:List of Taínos

(1) Is there some place that describes the variations on cacique? It looks like females were sometimes but not always called cacica. There also seem to be gradation of cacique mentioned.

(2) Is this list fairly complete for the known caciques? As in, when one entry mentions another name, should they be crosslinked?

3) Is there a source for dates for these people? Even if it is in a range it would be very helpful to get an idea of the time-frame for each. Paschorsch (talk) 06:00, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Untitled[edit]

There are a number of indexes that you can look to, particularly the works of Ricardo Alegria who has cataloged much of what we know of Taino culture.

Also as far as the female caciques: The term "cacica" is a Spanish feminization of "cacique" and would not have been in use by the Tainos. There is question as to whether the pre-conquest Taino, even had female caciques, or if the female caciques came as a novelty of the Spanish conquest. Where the Spanish would marry the daughters of caciques and then when the cacique had died, or was killed, the daughter would be raised to the prominent cacique role. Effectively injecting a European tradition of absolute primogeniture into taino politics, and facilitating control of the population, with or without marriage, as the system could be enforced by allegiance to the Spanish. Mad05963 (talk) 21:20, 30 July 2008 (UTC) CORRECTION: in the statement above I used the terms "absolute primogeniture" and described it as a tradition of the period, it did not become a tradition in Europe till the 1980s. Nevertheless whether the term existed to define the practice or not, it was an expedient practice for by-proxy domination of Taino groups.[[[User:Mad05963|Mad05963]] (talk) 01:17, 1 August 2008 (UTC)]
