Papa Bois Conservation post about Sacred Amerindian Sites in Trinidad, WI

Seen on Facebook:-

Mt Tamana….sacred Amerindian site….mist enshrouds us as we wait for darkness to fall and for the spectacle of thousands of bats to come out of the bat cave. From what I have been told the Amerindians believed that the mountain and its bat cave were a portal to their netherworld or afterlife. Up to about the 1930’s or 1940’s Amerindians from the mainland would come to Trinidad to make pilgrimages to Mt Tamana….before the days of stricter border controls. Cristo Adonis, a local shaman, told me that other sacred mountains were El Tecuche, San Fernando Hill and a mountain on the Paria Peninsula. (Marc)
