Puerto Rican children are taught from a young age that "hurricane" is Taíno in origin,
from the word "huracán," while no Latin pop music concert is complete without a
shout out to Boricuas — those from Borinquen, the Taíno name for Puerto Rico,
which means "land of the brave noble lord."

Your mind understands what you have been taught; your heart what is true.
