What does “Sibucán” mean?
Sibucán is a word used by the Taino aboriginals, to name an instrument or work tool, which was very useful for solving a daily need.
The Sibucán was a kind of narrow sack made with royal palm leaves and woven somewhat loosely, to achieve a mat shape. Grated cassava was placed in it, contained and pressed, until all the juice (which is poisonous) was removed from the joints. That practice was the traditional way to obtain the cassava flour to make the casabe or casabi, which is nothing more than a cassava bread cake.
Why the project is named “Sibucán”?
Similar to the use given by the Taino aboriginals, one of the goals of our team is to work continuously for Sibucán to become once more, a useful tool at the service of all community members.
Our project is also nourished by the innovative capacity, the talent, and the desire to prosper, of all local entrepreneurs, who will always remain an essential element for the development and improvement of the quality of life of our community.
