Taino Woods Update – July 2021

Greetings Familia, 

This Saturday July 17th at 11am, Taino Woods is hosting a sweat lodge: Prayer Sweat for Family to bring Prosperity, Purpose, Unity, and the Release of what no longer serves us. The sweat lodge is a sacred space to heal and express ourselves with our ancestors and community. It is extremely powerful and held with great reverence. Please come and join us in ceremony.  For more information and to reserve your spot, please email: tainowoodsny@gmail.com 

Looking for a getaway? Want to be closer to the Atabeyra (Mother Earth)? Taino Woods campsites are available for those seeking solace and solitude. For information on our campsites, special accommodations and services, go to our Fairy Magical Sweet Land Hipcamp Profile.

Our Growth: 
Because of your charity, Taino Woods has purchased chainsaws and wood for hosting our upcoming sweat lodges. We were able to host our summer solstice event because of you. And we were able to update the Taino Woods website! Check out our new website and GoFundMe page at: https://tainowoods.wpengine.com/ 

Thank You:
Our Gathering of the Tribes Summer Solstice event was a wonderful experience of beautiful people coming together and sharing art, food, spoken word, and music. Shout-out to Reina Williams, Madeline Thompson, and CC Treadway for their music performances. A huge thank you to the artisans and vendors: Karainwater Godastsis, Michael Casiano, Nicole Rosado, Emily Ulloa, Katya Vasilyeva, Somalia Williams, Graciela Brooke, Yaqui Rodriguez, Eve Roman, Mariem Magid, Lori Pirone, and Rossana Tello Guzman. And a special thank you to our family who supported and served: Eriqua, Chris, Mildred, Kunante, Evelio and Crew, and Gabrielle. We couldn’t have done this without you. If you missed the event, or just miss the experience, check out our video:


A humble call to volunteers. We are seeking your assistance in building and prepping the sweat lodge for the August 22nd ceremony. Our volunteer dates for this build are: Friday 8/6/21 through Sunday 8/8/22 and Friday 8/13/21 through Sunday 8/15/21. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete this form: Taino Woods Volunteers Form.

Coming Soon:
Sunday August 22nd, Taino Woods will be hosting a Full Moon sweat lodge. As a predecessor to this Saturday’s July 17th Prayer sweat lodge in which we let go of what no longer serves us, our August ceremony will be to receive all of the intentions we have set for ourselves and others.
