The chiefs were the leaders of the villages
(yucayeques). From left to right:
A chief with a stone collar, which showed
a taíno art form believed to have a religious
significance. While we are not sure of its exact
meaning, we believe that it represented a God or spirit.
A chief seated on a stone stool, a ceremonial seat
used principally by the Chief or other important person
in the village.
A chief with a "cemí," the physical representation
of a spirit or God, summoned through the cemí.
