Joshua Amistoso5thperiod4. MovementIndigenous People:Panama does have indigenous people. There are about 9 tribes in Panama that are classified as 7 cultures. They are the Kuna, Ngobe, Buglé, Emberá, Wounaan, Talamanca, Bokata, Teribe and Cricamola. Many of Panama's tribes are well known for their beautiful crafts work, from hand woven baskets colored with natural vegetable dyes, to amazing carvings in the hard coco-bolo wood that is found in three distinct colors. Panama's indigenous people are wellsprings of information that can, and will benefit all mankind. Their "Shamans" or medicine men have extensive in-depth knowledge of the jungle and the medicinal uses for many of the thousands of plant varieties found on the Isthmus of Panama. Right now Panama’s culture is a blend of African, American Indian, North American, and Spanish influences. ()
