Ngobe jungle bags

With a big machete, Isabelle, the medicine woman from San Cristobal, cuts down an agave. And also, plants for dyeing. We take them with us. A few hours later, we know how to make a jungle bag. This knowledge goes down generations of indigenous women of the Ngobe tribe. We learn from their respect in working with nature, using only what you need.

In two minutes, we show you two weeks of work of the Ngobe women to make the traditional jungle bag
Full moon on August 12th; this means the Ngobe women can dye the threads for the junglebags
