Punteggio 5.0 su 5mar 2017
Su di una crociera ai Caraibi con Oceania, abbiamo scelto di visitare le popolazioni indigene del Popolo Emberá. Il popolo Emberá sono noti come i custodi della foresta pluviale e del Fiume Piedra. All'arrivo al Fiume Chagres National Park, ci siamo imbarcati un catamarano motorizzato per un viaggio fino al villaggio di popolo Emberá sulla riva del Lago Gatun. Canoe di Dugout era originariamente un fattore critico per la conquista della giungla e di stabilire le linee di alimentazione sia per gli Indiani e spagnoli. Sulla strada per il villaggio abbiamo visto due bradipi e una varietà di uccelli. Dopo la corsa di questi navigasse, abbiamo visto il villaggio emergono dalla giungla. Il villaggio uomini ci ha accolti con musica e percussioni tradizionali del Popolo Emberá. I bambini piccoli imbottiti verso di noi per prendere il raccolto in corrente di visitatori. Una giovane donna ci ha dato alcune e sfondo su chi e come loro artigianato sono state fatte, quindi ha dimostrato alcune danze tradizionali. Siamo stati invitati a partecipare verso la fine di una delle loro danze. Il popolo Emberá sono artigiani spettacolare, e i visitatori al loro villaggio di 36 persone sono il loro sostentamento. Perché le rigide normative del parco nazionale non possono cacciare o tagliare alberi, possono pescare per la sussistenza e può crescere alcune verdure. Ma soprattutto fanno affidamento sui visitatori acquistare le loro sculture, tessuti di cesti e gioielli. Non è chiaro se essi sono stati pagati dai gruppi di tour. I bambini sono stati utilizzati per questo stile di vita strana e avrebbe facilmente posare per le foto. Ci è piaciuto molto per vedere se stessi sul video di cellulare e sapeva come attivare un video. Sembra che i figli grandi prendere una canoa a scuola a Colon. Non so se era una canoa motorizzata, o persone powered. Secondo la nostra guida, Eric, le popolazioni indigene del Popolo Emberá ha origine con gli Inca in Perù. Nel corso del tempo si sono trasferiti in America centrale fino all'ultima fermata di Panama. Più tardi abbiamo scoperto da Roy, il nostro server preferito corrente che c'è un'altra tribù che vive su un'isola nel lago. Un'esperienza meravigliosa

Contratamos o passeio de um dia, com transporte até o Rio Chagres, a subida de canoa até a comunidade indígena Emberá, com parada pra banho de cachoeira e almoço com frutas preparados pelos locais. Também tiveram apresentações de dança e a oportunidade de comprar os itens produzidos ali.
Só não foi melhor porque o rio estava com nível de água baixo, e toda hora a canoa encalhava nas pedras. A descida foi mais fácil, porque mesmo raso o fluxo do rio ajuda.

Ein toller Ausflug ins Leben der Ureinwohner. Nicht nur die Landschaft ist grandios, auch das Zusammentreffen mit den heimischen Familien. Sie erklären einem hautnah die alten Traditionen und gewähren einen Einblick in ihre Zuhause.

The pirogue journey on the Chagres river is already worth the visit on its own, for the beautiful scenery and wildlife on and along the river.
We visited the village of Parara Puru and received a warm and friendly welcome. While drinking a local juice we got very interesting explanations about the live, history and culture of the Embera that came to this region in the mid 50's of last century. One can wander around the village on its own, visit the small primary school, see people preparing their meal and purchase nice artwork.
Both the fruits offered and the fried tilapia in a banana leaf were very tasty.
And, of course, the visit ends with a "folkloristic" dance by the local community.
All in all: a colorful and interesting day!

Our Overseas Adventure Travel group were loaded into long, narrow canoes that were outfitted with a small outboard motor and were expertly guided down the rocky and sometimes swift Chagres River. Aguinaldo was our handsome and kind bow poke man keeping us clear of the rocks through the rapids in the river.
We had put in at a wide lake-like portion of the river but soon, as the river began to narrow, Aguinaldo began calling directional changes as we navigated the often rushing and turbulent waters. As we traveled we watched several canoes loaded with passengers that were forcing their human cargo to disembark into the river so their crew could pull the boat over the rocks. Happily Aguinaldo was much more experienced and we had a safe and lovely forty minute journey to his village down river.

There were several canoes loaded with people traveling in our direction and I was worried that this visit was going to be too touristy but I soon realized that many of the people in the canoes looked to be Panamanians who were stopping on a Sunday afternoon at little beaches that were peppered along the river’s edge. As we approached Aguinaldo’s village we began to see more straw hut villages tucked into the hillsides indicating a close knit series of the Embera community.

The Embera tribe originated from the Darien region in Panama. These people have lived in this area for centuries, long before the Spanish came to this region. It is unknown whether their ancestors migrated from elsewhere (there are rumors of Brazil or Polynesia) but no one knows for sure. At this time about 30,000 Embera Indians still live in the Darien region. The government of Panama recognizes the seven unique Indigenous tribes who live here and have been given a Comarca (similar to a reservation in North America) but these people were never forced from their home territories and were never forced into boarding schools or punished for maintaining their language and culture. Because they were allowed this independence their language, culture, traditions and lifestyle are still intact.

Rural life in the Darien region is not easy. Schools, supplies, medicine, and doctors are 6-10 hours away. For this reason many of the Embera tribes migrated from Darien to the Chagre National Park where they would have better access to things we take for granted as well as a possibility to develop a culture of tourism that would provide income for their daily needs. Panama has been very supportive encouraging these people in this way of life. Given this opportunity these lovely and happy people are maintaining pride in their culture and the opportunity to maintain their heritage.

As our canoes rounded the tree laden bend we pulled up along the sandy shore of the Embera Drua Village where members of the community came down to the beach to greet us and welcome us with their music. Once out of our canoes and assembled on the beach, our group began to climb the steps up the bank to their grass hut village overlooking the river where we were met and brought into a community grass "hut" where we were entertained by the local people.

The men and women of the village were dressed in their traditional outfits that, we were told, they always wear in the village and only dress in modern clothes when they leave to go to the city for supplies. The women’s traditional skirts were once bark but now are brightly colored cloth complemented by colorful beaded halters or bra like tops to cover their breasts. Their long dark hair also serves as modesty for some but before westerners entered the picture many women were simply topless. Men wore beautifully woven beaded “modesty” skirts barely covering their essentials and some had beaded “necklaces” draped across their chests. Many of the men and women were tattooed with henna on much of their bodies and faces.

The women of the tribe surprised us by coming to each of us ladies placing a beautiful woven headpiece made of hibiscus flowers on our heads. Once adorned, these handsome men and women performed a traditional circle dance with flutes and drums to keep the rhythm. With generous smiles we were all invited to join them in their ceremonial dance.

After a lunch that was prepared for us we were given the opportunity to shop in the shade of their long grass hut where every family had their colorful works arrayed on the long tables. We all were pleasantly surprised with the quality of workmanship on display and were eager to bring some of their work home with us while supporting the tribe. The sales of these beautiful handicrafts and artworks goes a long way to support the tribe’s life in the village but these baskets and other handicrafts take many hours, even days and weeks to complete. The sales of their efforts therefore are important to the tribe but I don’t think they ever receive their due for the long hours spent on these handicrafts, not to mention the value for the creation of their own art often equalling pennies per hour for their efforts. While we were told we could bargain, I felt it was not right given the amount of time, talent and labor spent for these beautiful pieces.

I thought Aguinaldo’s family’s artwork and handiworks to be of the best quality and so purchased a woven basket made of hand dyed palm fibers with the design of a red hibiscus in the center and a classic Embera design around the edge. I also bought a beautifully carved frog from a Wagana or Tagua Palm nut that had been painted green with red detail. These palm nuts look like ivory but are a renewable resource. After shopping I photographed Aguinaldo and his lovely wife Lisnet, also a talented handicrafter, and son Gael (baby Genesis was sleeping).

I later for a walk in the densely treed jungle to see what birds were there. I missed the tattoos but I was very lucky to come across a dark brown Montezuma oropendola perched high in the trees. I had heard their wonderful call but it was his bright yellow tail that gave him away. With patience I was successful in capturing his image as he stoically sat and watched. After my jungle walk I came back into the sunshine and was able to photograph the unique elongated oropendola nests hanging from some branches of the palm trees, but the owners of the nests remained hidden in the darkened jungle foliage.

I highly recommend a visit to meet these lovely people. It will provide an opportunity to see a people whose heritage is kept alive through their passion and love of their unique culture.

The Chagres National Park is unique and is situated on the outskirts of Panama City. It can be accessed from Colon as well. There are several Embera Indian settlements inside this park. While visiting any of those settlements, one will travel over the Chagres river in a motorized canoe boat which is a unique experience in itself. One will get to see native wildlife en route including several monkeys. It is certainly highly recommended to visit the same.

You wonder about visiting a native village. Is it going to he all fake. Are they really natives. This is the real thing or at least as much as can be in 2018. The Embera people were warm and friendly. The dance and play music as your boat approaches. Looks like a scene from a moving, with out the poison darts flying by. They preform some dances and have crafts for sale. The workmanship is outstanding. On the boat ride to the village we saw sloths in the trees, so cool. The locks are just what you expect, but now I have seen them in person. Can we say bucket list check.

This was a very good park to view and see people living in it and making a living from tourism and keeping the park viable. Our canoe trip was enjoyable, good to wear hats, sunglasses and lots of sunscreen or protective clothing. Onto the Alhajueta Lake we boarded a motorized dug out canoe and travelled up past the Pararu Puru village and down the Changres River to a side stream and walk in the jungle to a scenic waterfall and swimming pool at the base of the falls. The trail was rough but a lot of fun, crossing the stream and up and over slippery steep rocks. Juan showed us where to stand under the falls for a supper massage. Returning by the rough trail and to the village where we were welcomed by the locals in colourful costumes. After a demonstration of local woods and foods in a comfortable building on stilts with bamboo floor we had lunch served in a palm leaf of fish and plantain, local fruits and juice or water. Time to view the local crafts for sale and a demonstration of local dance with an opportunity to join in.
