Reina M. Miranda aka Sipai’naru (Red Clay Woman) was born in Washington Heights to Dominican immigrant parents who came to the United States like so many others hoping to provide a better life for their children. Reina is the eldest of four and she first found her love of poetry at the age of 18. Reina has been presenting her spoken word/poetry on the New York City Poetry circuit for over two years. Reina finds her poetic inspiration from the many people she admires and has met at various spoken word events throughout the New York tri-state area. In addition, she uniquely fuses her love of poetry and art with her passion for promoting her Taíno ancestry so she can help others get “Tainocated.” This is an educational term used when persons are informing others about the indigenous history of the Caribbean. In an effort to stay better connected to her Taíno community, Reina is a member of the Cacibajagua Taíno Cultural Society, a group dedicated to promoting Taíno culture via the arts. She is also enrolled with the United Confederation of Taíno People’s Taíno Population Census and Inter-Tribal Registry. Reina feels “knowing where you come from will help you get to where you are going.” Sipai’naru – Reina M. Miranda has presented her poetry at some of the following locations: 5C Cultural Club Capicu Poetry/ Notice Lounge The NuyoRican Poet’s Café Cemi Underground/ Taino Poetry Night Nuve’s Bar and Café HOSTOS Community College/ Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen 2 Rebel Art Collective/ S.P.I.T La Pregunta Café/Feed The Mic Soule Restaurant/Open Mic Night Denny Moe’s Barbershop/Poetry Under the Tree. A  first time author, the name of the book is Tree of Life: The Roots of My Journey.

Maverick (Glenn) Walker is a New York born poet and entertainer. Maverick Walker strives to capture and express the chaotic absurdity and suffering that is the Human Experience, since Maverick Walker was born on Earth as a human infant to a human female, just like all of you, yes….human..muhahahahaha
