Zemi is the name of the personal spirit/god of each Taino, and the idol in which the spirit resided. Each Zemi was personalised by its owner, i.e. it was given a name, a personality and a history. From time to time great public festivals were held in honour of the zemis. On these occasions, cassava bread was blessed and then shared out among the people who kept it as a talisman until the next festival
