Taino Today is a short documentary profiling Mercedes Martinez, a descendant of the Taino people. The Taino were the indigenous peoples that Christopher Columbus first encountered upon his arrival in the Bahamas. Mercedes celebrates her Taino culture through her artwork and crafts business, Anakachi Crafts, as well as her work at the Poughkeepsie Heritage Center where she curated an exhibit of all Taino artwork.
