The Tainos were Asian people who migrated to the Carribean Islands. The Tainos had caciques who were their leaders, and they lived in core shaped huts. They were mythological and had many different deities. Their gods were called Zemizemi, and they controlled various functions of the universe, much like Greek gods did.

The Zemi have certain powers in the natural world. The Zemi were often experienced through the phenomena of myths and magic. Myths had to do with caves, and the people lived in caves only coming out at night. The sun and the moon were in caves. They worshipped Zimas or Cimas who are gods, spirits, or ancestors.
