On Friday, October 14 at 7 pm, the architect, archaeologist and plastic artist Christian Martínez gave us a guided tour of the museum’s collection where he explained, anecdotally, stories, legends, and myths of the Quisqueya aborigines.
The narrated guided tour lasted approximately two hours and was attended by more than 30 people from the Casa de Campo and La Romana communities.
At the end of the tour, attendees were able to taste and try products inherited from the Taino culture such as guava, pineapple, peanuts, and cassava, all accompanied by Mabí, the fermented drink of the Tainos.
This narrated guided tour was carried out within the framework of the first Festival of Aboriginal Culture hosted by the Altos de Chavón Regional Museum of Archaeology which celebrates “the clash of cultures” of October 12th, 1492.
With this and other activities, the museum reaffirms and values the cultural heritage of our aborigines.
