Casa Areyto stats
Casa Areyto was vital to the production of my film “Golden Flower.” Priscilla Colon’s knowledge of Taíno language and culture delivered incredible authenticity to the movie.

Casa Areyto is located in Nashua, NH, a city named for the Nashaway Western Abenaki people. "Nashaway" in the Abenaki language means "river with a pebbled bottom". The traditional Abenaki homelands were called "Ndakinna", an area that encompasses Vermont, New Hampshire, northern Massachusetts, Western Maine, and southern Quebec. We acknowledge that the Abenaki people, known as the Alnobak in their own language, have always been here and will always be here. At Casa Areyto, we are committed to continuing the legacy of our Indigenous siblings to care for the land, revitalize our Indigenous languages, and learn from the people who have been here since the dawn of days.
