Soy Taino: El Sol y El Coquí

S1E1 Soy Taino: El Sol y El Coquí

Welcome to Rico en Sueños! We're talking Puerto Rico all season through the voices of Puerto Rican creators.

In the first episode we take a look at the Taíno Sun and Coqui symbols. The Taíno are the people indigenous to several islands of the Caribbean including Puerto Rico (also known as Borikén).

We talk with Alexandra Román about Obsesión, her debut sci-fi novel and the first book in the Divine Ascension trilogy, and Ronnie Garcia about their project Baba Guey. Through the episode we explore how the Taíno people and symbols are important to their work, their heritage, and their lives.

So tune in to the non-fiction podcast about fiction and its very real effects on our lives, and rock with us throughout Rico en Sueños.

Rico en Sueños

Our AMAZING Season 1 Artwork done by Vanessa Flores

I’m not sure if we’re back or if we’ve just arrived. I just know that I’m excited that we finally get to announce our first OFFICIAL season project, Rico en Sueños!

This season we are focusing on Puerto Rican creators on the island and across the diaspora; exploring how fiction has affected their identity and how their identity affects the worlds they create.

Rico en Sueños will highlight the voices of Puerto Rico to show us the power of dreams. By exploring dreams, we discover a space where the past, present, and future can exist at the same time. Through learning about Puerto Rico — its people, their collective identity, and their dreams — we can all learn how to acknowledge the richness of our past, contend with the issues our present, and create a vision for our future.

Hope this trailer gets you as hype as we are!!!
