A message from Dr. Juan R. Aviles Morales, MD

Raising public awareness using genealogy to undo the paper genocide orchestrated to erase our existence, the modern-day First Nation Peoples of the Caribbean. Get the facts and share them widely. Become a partner with the Council of Native Caribbean Heritage (C.O.N.C.H.) in educating the public on this critical, historical, and modern-day issue.
