Changing the world one photo at a time, photography for progressive organizations.

Embara niña

The Embara people are indigenous to Panamá Many live in the Province of Darien, near the border with Colombia. There are other villages in the jungles of Rio Chagres, closer to Gatún Lake and accessible from the lake. The Embara adhere to traditional ways but in the lake villages depend in part on tourism for their subsistence. They dress in traditional clothing while in their village, and live in traditional huts. I found this girl playing with her friends. She played to my camera when she saw me.
