Public Notice: Tribal Administration

The Guainía Taíno Tribe: iukaieke Guainía, Borikén seeks to empower community members culturally, socially, and economically. The affairs of the Guainía Taíno Tribe: iukaieke Guainía, Borikén are administered by an elected Kasike (Chieftain) and a Nitaino Council. The current Kasike of the Guainía Taíno Tribe, Borikén is Roberto "Múkaro Agueibaná" Borrero.

As per the Guainía Taíno Tribe's ratified Constitution, the Kasike serves for a 5-year term, at the end of which community elections are held to reaffirm the current leadership or vote in new leadership.  Iukaieke Guainía's constitution documents fundamental principles, precedents, and protocols to guide the community's governance.  

The Guainía Tribe of the U.S. Virgin Islands is administered via a separate Tribal council led by Kasike Maekiaphan Phillips. A representative of each community has an emeritus seat within the other respective council. 

Exercising our right to self-determination, Iukaieke Guainía has established, through separate organizing documents, a non-profit entity entitled Guainía Taíno Tribe, Inc, in Borikén to further its goals for community development. While mutually supportive and interconnected, Iukaieke Guainía, Borikén and the Guainía Taíno Tribe, Inc. are separate entities.
