Resumo

The indigenous origin of Cordon dance in Cuba is connected to the areíto of the Taíno people from the Caribbean. The structure of Cordon, its function and relevance as a form of indigenous therapy is a new idea introduced here to this particular subject. Describing and reflecting on the process that generates indigenous dance as therapy, resurrects a Taíno dance form believed to be extinct (areíto); it brings to the forefront a dance that is practically unknown (Cordon), reframing it as a legitimate healing practice. Both the areíto and Cordon inform alternative therapeutic processes within the context of presence. The areíto, currently performed through Cordon Spiritism, more than a vital healing resource for the community in which it takes place, it is also an expression of living tainidad.
