Caption:

A young Embera girl cools off in the river after a dance performance. She didn't even pause long enough to take off her elaborate necklace made of beads and coins. 

The community lies on the banks of the beautiful Chagres river. The crystal clear waters cascade out of a large tract of rainforest that serves as the watershed for the Panama Canal.
