Emberá People of the Darien Jungle

Portrait of the Emberá people in one of the most remote rainforests of the Neo-tropics; Rachel's encounter with jaguars, storytellers, shamans and privileged viewing of the ancient petroglyphs of "La Piedra." Known fondly as Raquela, Rachel, has become the godmother to a baby boy, and Manikidu named his baby daughter after Rachel's own granddaughter. Truly more things are being shared than the stories.

A picture is worth a thousand words. If you can't go to the rainforest, I can bring one to you. Talks can be geared to any age K-adult. They usually last up to an hour with more time left for questions and answers. The talk can be shorter for younger audiences.

I have given over 400 slide shows of beautiful images of exotic forests, amazing wildlife, indigenous people, scientific studies, difficult problems, solutions that are working, ecological concepts and how we can help in our own daily lives by what we do here at home.

Each talk is a minimum of $250 plus transportation. All proceeds are donated to tropical conservation projects.
