Format: Hardcover
After having spent over two years in Panama, I have seen the Kuna Indians and many styles of their molas. Maricel Presilla captures their beauty in the story and the many beautiful photographs. It is listed as a children's book, but I bought it for myself and have ordered copies to give to several of our Kuna (Panamanian spelling) friends. A wonderful book to have in your library about another fascinating culture.

4.0 out of 5 stars wonderful pictures, great for children! 23 Oct. 2009
By Marly Melsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
this book is great. and in response to someones comment that the author told half-truths, I think she was trying to simplify a culture that is complex in order to gain the interest of children. authors do this all the time, and although it can seem bad or that they are not telling the truth about the culture, they do this in order to open the childrens eyes to a different world. plus, the author spelled Kuna with a "C", like Cuna, because when she wrote it, that was the preffered spelling. The C and K are interchangeable and the opinon of the preffered spelling has changed throughout the years. So give the girl some credit

5.0 out of 5 stars Molas, a fascinating culture 21 Oct. 2015
By Harvest Moon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This appears to be a book for older children, however, it gives an interesting picture of life on the islands and the matriarchal culture there. I found it fascinating. I liked one quote " the women wear their world" which relates to the molas on the front and back of their blouses.
