One of our excursions included with our Caravan Tours to Panama was a visit to the Embera Indian Village. Our group of 41 was taken by boat for approx. 10 minutes along the Chagres River to the Embera Indian Village called Katuma. There we disembarked and walked up the steps that leads to their village on the hill . We were greeted by the children and adults and a small group of men playing musical instruments. They were all wearing their colorful traditional dress. We all gathered under a huge thatched hut and listened to the representative of the Embera tribe talk about his culture, showing their crafts, doing a dance, introducing the chief of the Embera Tribe and the Medicine Man. It was very interesting. We then were able to walk around and take a look at their huts from the outside, get a $2.00 tattoo or buy their very expensive crafts they make. Then we had a photo shoot. We took photos of them gathered together and then we all put our cameras down on a cloth for the Embera Indians to take photos of us gathered together.
