Guna General Congress and Important Consultations concerning the Marine Sanctuaries in Panama

The Four Worlds Foundation met with the Chiefs of Gunayala to talk about the Gunayala Marine Sanctuary. This initiative is based on the best experiences that our First Nation brothers and sisters have had with the Salish Marine Sanctuary. The idea is to protect what is sacred to Indigenous peoples on Sea and on Land. Four Worlds Chairman, Chief Phil Lane Jr. participated in the Regular Congress held in Gunayala. Douglas Tolchin shared information about the Salish Sea with the brothers of the Mesoamerican Alliance regarding the importance of creating sanctuaries in the Indigenous territories. Candido Mezua shared the importance of Marine Sanctuaries and that the Embera-Wounaan Territories will be declaring their own territories as a Bioregional Sanctuary
