I am Carlson Tuttle, I have been researching Garifuna culture for over thirty years in Barranco Village, Toledo District, BELIZE.
At present I am working on a book on Garifuna basketry. I hope you might be able to help with this effort. I have a few questions that I hope you can help me with.
In your article,xx, you state, " I ask about the “Cibucan” which is hung and used to squeeze the poison out of the Yuca. He says “oh we don’t use that one any longer as it does not hold as much catibia (yuca flower). We use instead a capacho, which holds a lot of yuca. It is also hung”. NEW WORD CAPACHO, possibly of Spanish origin although the utensil is indeed indigenous." Is this devise called a "cibucan" similar to what I know as a "ruguma", "matipi" or a "tipiti", a circular vertical devise used to squeeze out the poison by constriction? Later in that same article you have a picture of a Capacho, This devise looks like a similar devise I know from Jamaica that looks like a woven envelope that is used to desiccate cassava. Is the devise similar to the "capacho"?
Look forward to hearing from you and I want to congratulate you on your work on Taino culture.
