Photograph from Hon. Belisario Porras INDIAN MOTHER AND BABE: PANAMA The Cuna-Cuna, or Tule Indians of the San Bias coast of Panama, are of the purest aboriginal strain. For hundreds of years they have resisted amalgamation, and woe to the Cuna-Cuna belle who looks with favor upon a " foreign " lover. They are an intelligent race and are not savages by any means-even though nose rings are a part of the adornment of all members of the gentler sex, who wear them from the time they begin to walk.
