Description

This piece represents dākhi bedeafunu dākhi druā ome, which translates to communication with nature. The Emberá-Chamí are a very spiritual people, and are in tune with their natural environment. Their traditions are based on respecting Mother Earth as she is alive, but also provides for the people. Respect for the environment lies on the fact that the Emberá-Chamí believe that everything in the observable universe has a spirit and spirits should be respected. 

The colours have specific meanings to the Emberá-Chamí. Chïtör, white/grey, symbolises peace, light and purity. Purple, kukuarā, symbolises the vibrant colours found among flowers.
