This Cooperation Circle (CC) is dedicated to working with crafts. The majority of members are Kuna Indigenous women who do not speak Spanish, only their Kuna language. Through the arts and crafts they create, members are able to feed and educate their children. They also organize workshops in which they exchange experiences with other organizations and participate in fairs at a national level. CC members participate in seminars on preserving historic art designs. Youth also participate in CC meetings with other religions and conduct presentations of Indigenous dances and songs.
