Title:

Kuna Yala (San Blas Archipelago), Panama.

Caption:

Kuna women wear the mola blouse, crimson scarf and arm and leg bead wrappings as daily dress. The clothing of the women is the most cherished aspect of Kuna identity and source of cultural pride.
The Kuna are known for their fierce pride and serious composure but they have a warm sense of humor in relaxed situations. This young woman is amused at the attention she receives from visitors. Perhaps she smiles because she knows she is about to be paid. The Kuna know the value of their faces as subjects for photos and expect compensation for each shot.
