Arawak & Taino Symbols and Meanings

These are handouts I have about Taino and Arawak symbols. Here is a website that uses a lot of the same information grouped in categories and also a site with more detailed explanations.  Photographs of artifacts can be found in this book and of rock carvings at this website.  These Taino tattos also have clear images and descent explanations.

Here are links to other websites with symbols for many diverse Native American Nations. 

Here is a link to Creation Stories:
