Typical Embera Indian Home

This is the home of an indigenous Emberá family located on the outskirts of El Real, inside Panama’s Darien Gap. Perched up on stilts to protect from annual flooding from all the rivers in the area. The Emberá are one of 3 indigenous groups that have called the remote Darien region home for hundreds of years. We passed many traditional homes like this on our way into Darien National Park. I actually rented a machete for our 3 day jungle trek from a local Emberá man who lived down the road.
