An introduction to IRC chat rooms
What is a IRC Chat Room?
A chat room is an on-line area in cyberspace where people can
meet in a "room" to share their thoughts by typing from their keyboards
and viewing the messages that pass back and forth between other participants in
the chat room.

IRC software is a program that is installed in your computer and
permits you to communicate with the other participants in a chat room
on one of the IRC internet servers that are connected to a network.
You can download software from the MIRC Home Page:
What is an IRC nework?
This is a group of server computers that host the registered chat rooms
of the network's IRC users. You will find many networks on servers such as Superchat,

What is an Op?
An Op is the person in charge of running and keeping control of the users within the
chat rooms. We do hope that you will respect his or her orders, for they have the power to
kick you out or ban you completely from all the IRC chat rooms.
The Taino Native Chat Room channels
The following are the four registered IRC chat rooms on the Superchat server and
network which are registered with ChanServ for the Taino non-profit educational organization
known as of the Taino Inter-Tribal Council, Inc. of the State of New Jersey.
- The Taino Chat Room is a private chat room used by the members
of the Taino Inter-Tribal Council to conduct or host the national and
regional Inter-Tribal Council meetings of its TITC Board of Directors
and regional Taino Tribal Circles found in other parts of the present
day United States and Puerto Rico. We hold this meeting on the Internet
world wide web cyberspace world community.
In this day and age, as we Native Americans move
into the year 2000, we must learn to use the many new communications tools
or capabilities available to our communities today.
- The Boriken chat room serves as a place were members of the
Taino communities, its leaders and teachers, can meet to learn
about Taino culture by conducting on-line classrooms in the
educational area of Taino Indigenous Cultural Retention. The
Taino have lost much of their culture because of the Eurocentric domination
of Spanish colonialism. These private on-line classes hope
to reestablish new cultural awareness in the areas of
Taino language, Taino art, Taino history and private traditional
Taino Native American studies.
We hope to give our youth a clearer understanding
of what our Native American customs and values are all about in
a modern and growing society. Note that these class are open to the
members of the Taino Inter-Tribal Council and its Taino Tribal
associates, the NJ United States regional Taino Tribal Council
of Jatibonicu' and the members of the tribe of Jatibonicu' of the
MounTAINOus tribe of Jatibonicu' in Boriken, aka Puerto Rico.
- The Native Chat Room is a place were all the indigenous nations
of the Americas can meet and share in many common concerns
that effect our Native American communities thoughout America.
Some foolish Eurocentric nationalistic United States apple-pie type
Native Americans have a foolish concept that the center of
America is the United States OF America and that the
rest of the continent is not America. Well for these and other reasons
we have created this this N.A. Chat Rooms of La raza indigena,
The Indigenous Race of America. Latinos and Anglos and speakers
of all other Native American languages are much welcome here,
without any prejudice whatsoever! This is the Round House of
Amikekia Caguama (Our land of peace the Turtle Island) America
that we Native Americans all know and love.
- This Taino Batey is the traditional Taino meeting place of the Yucayeke
(Village) and its people. In the Batey del Taino many Taino community issues will be addressed within this Batey Chat Room. This chat room is open to all Tainos who are members and non-members of Taino community organizations that want to bring up any social, environmental ecology or any other political
issues effecting the Caribbean Island communities and our other United States based Taino communities.
