Taíno Caves in the Dominican Republic. !



The Taínos' origin myth is centered around a cave that was right here on the island of Hispaniola. They say that the ancestor spirits lived in this cave, coming out only at night to eat jobos, a small plum-like fruit. One night the jobos must have tasted especially good, for some ancestor spirits were still outside the cave eating them when the sun came up and turned them into human beings.
