  1. Guanín

    In the Taino culture of the Antilles, a guanín or Gua-NiN meaning "The Noble of Nobles" was a badge of honor of tribal leadership and authority, worn by the Caciques and by the Nitaino. It was a mixture of Gold and Bronze,made from flakes of gold extracted from rivers; these flakes were pounded with rocks until they melted together into a small disc which the Cacique could wear around his neck or some other part of the body. It attracted early European visitors. See Guanin. http://www.taino-tribe.org/tribal-nation-seal.htm
