Description:

El Museo del Indio, located in the second floor of Ballajá, houses a fine collection of archeological artifacts pertaining to the indigenous inhabitants of the Caribbean. The Taínos of Boriquén populated the island before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in the 15th century. Meaning “friendly-people” in Arawakan, the Taínos were named by Columbus to emphasize the difference between them and the hostile Caribe tribes. The museum celebrates their heritage and cultural contributions to Puerto Rico.
