Taino Stomp Dance
I have found videos of stomp dances by indigenous peoples from most of the countries of northwestern South America and Central America . . . but not Mexico. Apparently, the tradition never got farther north than Costa Rica.
This Taino Stomp Dance is much closer to the traditions of the indigenous Southeastern tribes than typical pow-wows held around the country that feature Plains Indian traditions. A Taino dance ground with stones around it is on top of a hill near Six Flags Over Georgia in Metro Atlanta. It could well be that the many stone circles in the Southern Highlands are actually dance grounds. Arawak place names can be found in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina.
