CUNA

Cary Wolinsky
Created November 18, 1991 San Blas Islands, Panama. A Cuna (Kuna) Indian woman wearing a traditional appliqué mola and beads, uses her body weight to operate a sugarcane press. The Kuna live on coral islands cultivating coconuts, which they trade with Colombians for cloth and other essentials. The Kuna women have a keen sense of fashion and compete furiously to wear the finest molas and bead decoration that they can create. Many of the women have vast mola wardrobes. The wrap skirt is called a saborete; the head cover, a bandana probably originating in India, is called tunvedi.
