Natalia Fernandez, 16, holds up a skirt made of the bark of a palm tree for her costume, called  "El Danzante del Sonido," the sound dancer in Spanish, as she makes her costume, at her home in Jayuya, Puerto Rico, on Tuesday, November 18, 2008. Fernandez was nominated by her school to parcipate in the Taino pageant in which girls are judged by their native look and design of their costume. Residents will celebrate the 39th annual Festival Indigena de Jayuya, which honors their Taino Indian heritage, this weekend.
