The Guna-Yala

The Guna are a group of Native Americans who live on the Caribbean coast of Panama and also the San Blas Islands.  They were able to achieve semi-autonomy through an uprising in 1925.  Today they work to maintain their culture in the modern age and subsidize their existence through travel and tourism.  I had the good fortune on a recent visit to the San Blas Islands to visit one of their villages.
