"Peace! My name is Bo’kem Allah. I am one of the founding members of Borikemetics. I understand you are accepting nominations for the next Taino Awards and I’d like to nominate Papote El Boríke for Guaribo/Warrior of the Year.
I feel that his reputation speaks for itself, but I’d like to recount the many contributions Papote has made to the greater Borikwa communiuty on behalf of Borikemetics… as well as for a better understanding of what it means to be a Native of Puerto Rico… Borikwa.
He has made substantial monetary contributions to MANY non-profit groups and community centers in respects to raising cultural awareness. He has made many significant efforts to bring the issue of Oscar Lopez Rivera to the forefront of the Borikwa dialogue. With his level intelligence and passion for his people, he puts himself out there as a TRUE LEADER, regardless to the ridicule and slander that will inevitably follow. He diligently spearheaded this Borikemetics movement which has inspired a new sense of curiosity in the psyche of our people in regards to parts of our history that has been neglected by many scholars and educators alike.
There is no other person that I know of that deserves the recognition that Papote has merited for quite some time.
PAPOTE EL BORíKE FOR GUARIBO OF THE YEAR!!!!” -Bo’kem Allah
