Focuses on Kuna plant and animal life, social life, and social change as a means of saving traditional ecological knowledge and 'returning' it to the community. This book seeks to develop native self-awareness and provide a model for collaboration. It is suitable for Latin Americanists, anthropologists, and ethnobotanists.
