|Abstract:||In this creative thesis I will explore what it means to be a descendant of a diasporic indigenous peoples, the Taínos, of Puerto Rico who were forced into exile and extinction by the two waves of colonization by Spain and the United States. How this merging of different cultures helped to create the legacy that my family upholds and fights against. How that has forged who I am today as a writer and my connection--unbelievable, maybe ironically--to the Navy sailor I call my husband and how that red string of fate has brought us to Hawaiian shores where some of my Puertorican culture is alive and well . . . as it had been for the last 118 years.|
