Boricua from Puerto Rico

Puerto Ricans often proudly identify themselves as Boricua (formerly also spelled Boriquén, Borinquén, or Borinqueño), derived from the Taíno word Boriken, to illustrate their recognition of the island’s Taíno heritage. The word Boriken translates to “the great land of the valiant and noble Lord”. Borikén was used by the original Taíno population to refer to the island of Puerto Rico before the arrival of the Spanish. The use of the word Boricua has been popularized in the island and abroad by descendants of Puerto Rico heritage, commonly using the phrase yo soy Boricua (“I am Boricua”) to identify themselves as Puerto Ricans. Other variations which are also widely used are Borinqueño and Borincano, meaning “from Borinquen”. The first recorded use of the word Boricua comes from Christopher Columbus in his Letter to the Sovereigns of 4 March 1493.
