Representing the largest group of indigenous peoples in Panama, the Ngäbe and Buglé tribes are distinctly different with two entirely unrelated languages. The two tribes maintain their fascinating and important cultural traditions in their communities in the Panamanian highlands. While the two groups are closely related and are generally called the Guyamí, the Ngäbe and Buglé are two separate communities of people. The Ngäbe are the larger of the two groups but when combined with the smaller Buglé tribe they make up the largest and most significant group of indigenous people in Panama.
Men typically wear Western style clothing which is suited to their agricultural and farming lifestyles. The women, however, maintain their cultural heritage by donning brightly colored dresses called naguas. These are often decorated with intricate and elaborate embroidery and the women often sell these handmade dresses to tourists for extra income.
