This is a video about the rights and fishing practices of the Kuna people of the Comarca, an autonomous region of Kuna Yala, which is a 226-km long strip of Panama's Caribbean coast. Opening with a map of the area, the video consists mostly of interviews with Kuna people who tell how their fishing rights were secured; distinguish between men's and women's fishing; describe how fish is prepared and shared; point out the importance of their customary practices; outline how conflicts are resolved; and explain how fishing knowledge is transmitted. The video concludes with a summary by a researcher into Kuna culture. The interviews are in Kuna and Spanish with English subtitles.
