Embera Chami Women Tribe

The Embera Chami people mostly live on the Western region of Colombia and Panama along the river systems.   The women create these beautiful beaded collar necklaces called Okamas.   The Embera Chami people believe that women carry the weight of the world on their shoulders, and they create these Okamas as a way of adorning and glorifying this weight we carry.   The Embera people are also at risk of losing their culture and heritage due to being displaced by paramilitary conflicts in Colombia in the past.      We all know the weight that women still carry on their shoulders, and we hope that your Okama will lighten your load!
