What did the Kuna people gain from the Panamanian government in 1925? independence full control of their land citizenship
Weegy: The Kuna live in three politically autonomous comarcas or reservations in Panama, and in a few small villages in Colombia. There are also communities of Kuna people in Panama City, Col?n, and other cities. [ [ The greatest number of Kuna people live on small islands in the comarca of Kuna Yala or on the island off the coast of Panama, known as the San Blas Islands. The other two Kuna comarcas in Panama are Kuna de Madugand? and Kuna de Wargand?. ] Of the more than 47,000 Kuna people in Panama at the time of the 1990 census,(1) almost 32,000 lived in the 49 communities of Kuna Yala. Since their 1925 uprising against the central government, they have gained a significant degree of self-rule - much more than other indigenous peoples of Central America. The Kuna gained their comarca in 1938, and the Panamanian constitution of 1945 vested most decision-making powers therein to the Kuna General Congress (CGK), a body made up of democratic councils attended by delegates from all Kurta communities, who in turn elect an executive body of three leaders. The Panamanian legislature, however, can pass laws to subject Kuna Yala to special governance, to effect public service, or to make administration easier, and 16 such laws are in existence. Through these and other means, the Panamanian government has tried to integrate the comarca into the rest of Panama and has won certain battles - most notably those regarding primary education, customs inspections, and malaria spraying, all of which the Kuna have opposed for various reasons. Still, according to James Howe, the precise terms of this integration are "as much Kuna- as government-inspired." The Kuna remain isolated, largely self-sufficient, and proud of their vibrant traditions. ] (More)
