Heading for the Dugout
March 18th, 2003
The more things change, the more you appreciate a place like Negril! Take for instance this dugout canoe sitting stoically on the soft white sands of the Negril beach. This canoe was carved from the trunk of a large silk cotten tree, in one solid piece with no seams to effect buoyancy. Talk about water proof, a brilliant design! This scene has been repeated since the days of the Tainos, the human inhabitants living on the island back in 1492 when one Christopher Columbus decided that he has found Asia. Although he was wrong by a few thousand miles and the diseases that his expedition and future visits wiped out the Tainos in Jamaica, some aspects of the Taino live on today! Canoe is a Taino word, just as the word hammock! Tobacco is also a Taino word, but it did not refer to substance smoked, but the smoking device itself. Thanks for reading this trivia ramblings, Negril sometimes does that to you... (grin)
