Kuna or Cuna is the name of an indigenous people of Panama and Colombia.  In the Kuna language, the name is Dule or Tule, meaning “people.”  The Kuna live in three politically autonomous comarcas or reservations in Panama, and in a few small villages in Colombia.  There are also communities of Kuna people in Panama City, Colón, and other cities. The greatest number of Kuna people live on small islands in the comarca of Kuna Yala. – Wikipedia

We took this photo while sailing from Panama to Colombia for 4 days.  We visited several Kuna villages established on the Islands of San Blas in Panama´s Caribbean.   The Kuna often rowed from one island to the other in dugout canoes, some even with homemade sails.
