DescriptionA meeting of the Congreso General Kuna, on the island of Carti Tupile, March of 1985. The five cassettes cover only part of the roughly 2 and a half days of this meeting, mostly because James Howe, who made the recordings, did not succeed in getting permission to record until the Congress had been in session for a while. Nonetheless, the tapes cover a large number of speeches by delegates to the Congress.

The recordings were made on a Sony Super-Walkman. Although they are of generally good quality—the speeches are all or almost intelligible—there were difficulties with the microphone, and there are gaps that are blank or with very faint recordings.
