The Taino passed their legends down orally;they were first recorded by the Spanish colonialists. Some of the Taino language was preserved by writers who used Taino words to describe the alien aspects of their new surroundings,including casabe and bohio. One of the first legends retold in Puerto Rico is that of Guanina by Dr. Cayetano Coll y Toste. Once the Taino Indians had proven that the Spaniards were not immortal through the death of Diego Salcedo they rebelled. The legend of Guanina tells of that rebellion.
