With these words heard, through a dream, the spirits aroused in Beike Bo Miguel Sobaoko Koromo the mission to establish the Caney Circle. They were words that prophetically foretold to him in 1974 that there was to be a great rebirth of Taino awareness among the descendants of the Caribbean's ancient peoples, people who had almost been destroyed by the Spanish conquest that began in 1492.
Later, in 1983 he would experience a spectacular shamanic event in his life. That event, recounted by him in his book CANOA* opened his eyes to the
millennial oracle now known as THE TWENTY-FOUR GENERATION PROPHESY.
The oracle takes its name from the twenty four stones that are commonly placed in a Caney circle between the four cardinal stones of the
medicine wheel. It
foretells not only the rebirth of the Taino nation but the fact that this rebirth is a sign of a future global renewal called THE GREAT EARTH CHANGES.
This event, which is due to occur in the year 2012 will close a 260-century
in the on-going history of the Earth. That huge cycle is closely linked to the evolution of the human
consciousness. At that time humans will be confronted with an epochal window of opportunity through which we shall be given the choice between a great flowering of our species on the earth or the gradual but inexorable destruction of everything that sustains and
The reason The Taino revival was so important to this prophesy is that it's beginning date, 1992, marks the end of a shorter 500-year cycle imbedded within that greater 260-century Great Cycle
mentioned above. This 500-year cycle was the one that began on the date 1492 when Columbus arrived in the so-called "New World" putting an end to that era of Taino history, and ended in 1992 when the Tainos
reawakened. The Taino revival was a milestone on the
millennial path which humanity was destined to walk, and a signpost of things to come.
