KUNA YALA, PANAMÁ
In spite of centuries of contact with Europeans, the Kuna Indians have maintained their traditions, even fighting a successful revolution in 1925 to retain their autonomy from Panama. In the 1925 Project, Kuna children who live on the islands of Kuna Yala -- and others whose families have migrated to Panama City -- document the myths, history, and art of their people on film.
Social Impact - Key Project Data
- Films seen by hundreds of thousands of viewers;
