The Nitainos were the ruling class, who supervised the working class, the Naborias, and led them in battle. On the left is a Nitaino with a wooden "macana," made from palm and hardened by fire. It was used like a sword and was capable of removing a limb. On the right, a Nitaino with a stone hatchet with wooden handle, another weapon used by the Tainos.
