On July 11, 2005 I went to a fundraiser to bring
attention to the Wounaan people and was blown away with the problems
they face in Panama. Again, the indigenous peoples are not being recognized
by their own government and their lands in the rain forest are being
taken from them, burnt, and these perpetrators are planting grass
to graze cattle for burgers. The livelihood of these people depend
on their ability to defend themselves at the government level.
It can take two months to make one basket.
By purchasing a basket or donating to this group of Wounaan of the Darien Jungle you can help them realize their dreams to create a sustainable lifestyle.
