Taino and Maya: Similarities and Differences
Social life of the indigenous people included their religion, recreation, gender relations, architecture & infrastructure, family life, arts and craft, and education. [ Political life in the societies involved the political systems that governed their societies, structured format of their geographic/ demographic
arrangements. This was also linked to economic activity and rules and sanctions appointed and understood by their authority enforcers and general people respectfully. Economic activity involved the means by which the societies attained their specific and general needs whether it was by subsistence to surpluses farming, by a nomadic approach to hunting, forms of trade, utilization of natural resources (e.g. fishing on small islands and slash and burn techniques for fertilized cultivation). An analysis of economic activity will also extend to the roles and contributions of different gender and age defined individuals, and different racial, ethnic and social classes in the processes of meeting their needs. This study demonstrates substantial similarities but even more differences in the social lives of these people groups, prior to the intervention of the Europeans. From this study I will attempt to prove that although some similarities did exist between the two societies, the vast number of differences far surpasses them.
