The Indigenous Caribbean Network has become a massive site in its own right, rich in content and interaction, far exceeding in representative legitimacy, geographic scope, and informative materials that which the CAC could have provided, as much as we sought to. In addition, the ICN is wholly run by Caribbean indigenous persons, and primarily for indigenous persons. Originally, when it was created in 2008, it was simply intended as a replacement for the CAC's "Directory of Researchers," a static page (original, archived) which individuals could not update themselves.
