Kit Kapp Guna Yala Photos From The 1960s

Kit Kapp’s archives included a number of photographs of Guna Yala from the 1960s. Most of the shots are from the San Blas Islands, but some show Guna communities on the Bayano River in the Darien.  We don’t know if Kit took these photos, or acquired them elsewhere. But many of the images are really touching, revealing the gentle humanity that is so much a part of these wonderful people. We also like the image of Kit at the wheel of the Fairwinds, the sailboat he lost in a tragic engine explosion off the coast of Colombia.
