Panama is populated by just 3.2 million people. The country is Carabisch Spanish, both in terms of culture, language and customs and habits. Ethnically, the majority of the population is mestizo, a mix of Spanish, indigenous, Chinese and West Indies. One of the main indigenous peoples are the Kuna. The majority of the Kuna Indians are now living on the islands of San Blas Archipelago (Kuna Yala) on the northeast coast. Smaller groups are scattered in the Kuna Darien province, bordering Colombia. The Kuna took refuge here after escaping the Spanish colonizers. They wanted to preserve their traditional lifestyle and did not wish to assimilate. Their attempt was successful, the Kuna are to this day a proud group of people with a strong sense of unity.
