Taino is an Arawakan language of the Caribbean, originally spoken in what is now Puerto Rico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas. Today there are two Taino languages: the original Taino tongue--which, though not spoken as a first language today, is being taught to Taino children in an active language revival program--and a unique Spanish-Taino creole, spoken by many Taino people, using Spanish grammar but with half of its vocabulary words being Taino in origin.

Atabey is the Supreme Goddess of the Taínos (Native peoples of the Caribbean during the pre-Columbian era) and is one of two supreme deities in their religion. She was worshipped as the goddess of fresh water and fertility. This deity was one of the most important for the native tribes that inhabited the Caribbean islands of the Antilles, mostly in Puerto Rico (Borikén), "La Hispaniola" aka 2/3 Dominican Republic / 1/3 Haiti (Kiskeya), and Cuba (Cubanacan).
