For whatever glitchy reason, my recent taggage has gone un(re)published here, so I’m going to paste it in below just to throw all you loyal readers a bone or two. Plz pardon the wonky formatting and lack of linkage. &thx, as always, for bearing with me during a wane-y stretch. Mo’ wax to follow, y’all —

Another opinion was, “The Coat of Arms should remain as it is.” A friend from a leading Puerto Rican Taíno organization once stated to me with amazement and pride that Jamaica is the only Caribbean nation that has indigenous people on its Coat of Arms.”
