The workshop will be an opportunity to update national and foreign participants on the latest research on the subject.

Organizing Committee member Cosme Casals told Prensa Latina that the program of the event proposes two panels dedicated to the Indo-Cuban roots and the exchange with members of the Rojas-Ramirez family, heirs of Cuban Indians.

Likewise, a visit is scheduled to the Rojas family’s home, in the town of Fray Benito, in the coastal municipality of Rafael Freyre, which is also part of the long list of descendants of aborigines and maintains the tradition of making cassava (a pie made of cassava flour).

For his part, Cuban-American researcher Jose Barreiro will present the book “Panchito: cacique de la montaña” (Panchito: Chieftain of the Mountain), which contains conversations with this leader of one of the few settlements in the eastern hills, where his ancestors managed to survive.

Likewise, the Kaweiro group, a collaboration network that works in the dissemination of indigenous knowledge in Cuba, will guarantee the transmission of audiovisuals related to the subject.

The workshop is sponsored by Casa de Iberoamerica (Ibero-America’s House, based in Holguin), the Office of the Curator of the Heritage City “Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion de Baracoa”, Casa de las Americas and the Jose Manuel Guarch Chair of the University of Holguin.
