The Emberá and Wounaan were once forest people, who lived a sustainable lifestyle, soley relying on the land and rivers that surround their huts on stilts. Today, deforestation, farming and with outsiders encroaching on their forest existence has changed their way of life. 

Rising up to the challenges of a modern day way of life, the artisans continue to honor their cultural craft, of weaving baskets, masks, and carving wood. Their cultural art is sought after by collectors around the world.
