Their lifestyles are the only proven working models for the sustainable consumption of biological resources.

    Statement from the Kuna Indians of Panama on 500 Years of Indigenous Resistence
    We, indigenous peoples are more than just present, but are rebuilding our societies for the next 500 years of justice and liberty. We believe that it is crucial that all indigenous people come together to analyze what we have accomplished up until now. Our beliefs have been negated for so long; others have spoken for us and have imposed their political ideologies upon us. We must now come together in order to build a more just society, based on the rights of each group, no matter how small, to choose our own destiny. We are very conscious that the struggle for justice will not be achieved by Indian people alone. An alliance with other oppressed sectors is necessary. However, this alliance should emerge from an atmosphere of respect for our differences. 1492: Discovery? Encounter? Invasion? stands with the undefeated losers of the European conquest. This sixteen-page tabloid tells the story of the conquest from the perspective of the indigenous people of Latin America and of North America. It draws from the log of Columbus and from the writing of Rigoberta Menchu, a Guatemalan Indian. It draws from the statements of Native Americans organized for their own commemoration of 500 Years of resistance. It raises questions about "progress." It provides opportunities for student participation through suggested activities and discussion questions.

This is not to downplay the distinctions of the two, for they speak separate languages, their traditional roles Waounan were artists, and Embera warriorsset them apart and they are organized politically as separate groups. Our Embera Case Study is focused on the people of Embera Drua (Upper Chagres), Embera Puru and Arimae (Darien). Our Waounan Case Study is focused on the people of Puerto Lara (Darien).
    In the following pages, we will feature various subjects such as, History Culture and Lifestyle Cultural Preservation Efforts (and Human Rights) , assessments of Eco-Tourism and Local Guides and our Photo Gallery General Information In the census of 1990, the population of Panama was 2,329,329 inhabitants of whom 194,166 or 11.8% were Indigenous. The republic of Panama is divided into 9 provinces and its Indigenous population is formed by 7 distinct groups which are the Kuna, Embera, Waounan, Ngobe, Bugle, Nassau, and Terribe people. The first Comarca Indigena, official Indigenous territory in Panama was created in 1938 in the San Blas archipelago by the Kuna people. In the province of Darien, the Embera and Waounan people joined forces and organized themselves politically to create the Comarca Embera-Waounan in 1983. It encompasses the districts of Cemaco and Sambu.

Ngob-Bugle and Embera Indians held peaceful demonstrations in five provinces on May 27, demanding that the government complete demarcation of indigenous lands. On May 28, one Ngob-Bugl man was beaten to death by police agents when a group of demonstrators was blocking the Pan-American Highway.

    Panama: Mining, forests and indigenous peoples' rights The isthmus of Panama stretches in Central America, one of the regions of highest natural and cultural diversity in the world. Different forest ecosystems constitute an essential component of such richness. Several indigenous nations have found in the forests their home and source of livelihoods. In Darién, San Blás and Panamá Oriente live the Emberá-Wounan and the Kuna indigenous people, while the Teribe occupy the area of Bocas del Toro, in the border with Costa Rica, together with the Ngobe-Bugle, who also inhabit part of the provinces of Veraguas and Chiriquí Oriente. According to the 1990 National Census, the indigenous population of Panama is composed of 180,700 individuals, which represents 7.8% of the total population of the country. According to the existing records, since 1850 the forest area has been declining at a high rate. That year forests were estimated to cover 91% of the country’s area, even after having suffered a severe process of deforestation caused by the Spanish colonization, which started in the 16th century. During the 20th century the fall was remarkable. For example, between 1950 and 1960 forest cover diminished from 68% to 58%. According to official estimates, in 1992 the forest area was reduced to 3,358,304 hectares, representing 44% of the country’s area. Nowadays deforestation rate has been estimated in 75,000 hectares a year.

    Panamá: Protected areas vs. indigenous peoples The accelerated destruction of forests is one of the most serious environmental problems of Panama, which at present retains only one third of its original forest cover. The best solution found by the State to tackle this problem has been to define protected areas, under the name of "parks", which are generally inhabited by indigenous peoples. This is what happened, for instance, in the Darien National Park, where approximately 40 communities of the Kuna people (Pucuru and Paya) live, or in the La Amistad International Park, where both Naso-Teribe and Bri-Bri peoples live. The establishment of protected areas in these territories implies a ban on hunting, fishing, plant growing and the traditional use of natural resources, and therefore it affects the subsistence of these peoples whose cosmology focuses on their relationship with Mother Earth. Panama has ratified the Convention on Biological Diversity, which aims at the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of natural resources and the equitable sharing of the benefits derived from the use of natural resources. Article 8j of the Convention also establishes that the States, subject to their own legislation, are to respect, preserve and maintain the knowledge, innovations and practices of the indigenous peoples in reference to the use of the natural resources found in their territories. This means that the States should respect the principle of spirituality and sacredness, which are the practice of the indigenous people in reference to the use of the natural resources that surround them.

    For years there was a guerrilla presence and they did not do anything to us. They just came and went and did not bother us. But now after all these years they are killing us. There was a ten-year-old child killed, and families have been kidnapped. It is the same for the Kuna on the Colombian side of the border, around the Gulf of Uraba.

    Indigenous Peoples Without Frontiers
    Declaration of the Indigenous Communities of the Darien and Colombian border region We declare that: 1. The problems along the border of Colombia and Panama have been produced by the violation of human rights of indigenous peoples, black people and the peasant sector, within the framework of the globalisation of markets and international privatisation. 2. The policies of security, along both sides of the border, have been developed under a purely military vision, inspired by Plan Colombia and the Andean Regional Initiative. These policies have increased the budgets of the Armed Forces, and have led to an increase in the violation of the civil and political rights of those who attempt to find asylum and of the communities who receive them. 3. The internal conflict in Colombia which has now spread to Panama has forced thousands of Colombians to seek refuge in Panama, has been the pretext to militarize both sides of the border, and employ repressive measures against the population. The restriction of travel, accusations and threats, looting, forced displacement, torture and rape have been used against the civilian population, both those fleeing and those who receive them.

    Health of indigenous people: a challenge for public health
    Washington, DC, August 15, 2002 (PAHO) Although the term indigenous people in the Americas is widely used, that generalization encompasses more than 400 different ethnic groups, with different beliefs and different health practices. This diversity presents a challenge for public health in the Americas, where indigenous peoples are among the most excluded. The response of the Pan American Health Organization is its Health of Indigenous Peoples Initiative, started in 1993, which signifies a commitment by PAHO and its Member States to work with indigenous peoples to improve their health and well being. It is also a recognition of the value and need to conserve indigenous cultural heritage and knowledge. Photos

    Serious health and social problems still exist for the estimated forty-three million indigenous peoples living in the Americas. Recent studies have indicated that these peoples are among the most poor and disadvantaged, and each of the more than 400 ethnic groups "has its own beliefs and practices with regard to health, as well as their own community resources for health promotion, disease prevention or cure of common ills," explains Dr. Sandra Land, PAHO's regional adviser in local health services. The initiative for health of indigenous peoples was launched due to the inequalities that existed in health status and in access to basic services between those communities and other social groups. Indigenous communities have higher rates of avoidable mortality and morbidity and lower life expectancy at birth, and many of them do not have regular access to essential health care due to economic, geographical, or cultural barriers.
