A Cacique is a leader of an indigenous group, derived from the Taíno word kasikɛ for the pre-Columbian tribal chiefs in the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the northern Lesser Antilles. Mabó was a good provider for his people, a good farmer and had very good skills that enabled him to be the leader of his “Yucayeque”, the town known today as Guaynabo.
