Cuna Indian

Sharon De Vore Gonzalez's Facebook profile This Cuna Indian from the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama is selling molas. They make them to wear; layers of cloth created by reverse applique. When they found that they were marketable, they started making them to sell. The bands on her legs and wrists are beaded work, and now they sell them also. The women in the Cuna Society are the controllers and rulers. Hope that you enjoy!

Beautiful photo, I just love her rustic wares. Such skill, such designs! My parents went to Panama in 1973. For many of the indigenous people things do not change over time, and they still focus on the same traditional skills and way of life. A great photo, it would be wonderful for a geography book.
