Retratos de la Comunidad Maleku

 

(Portraits of the

Maleku Community)

The Maleku Community consists of just under 1,000 individuals that live in three small villages (or palenques) located on the Guatuso Indigenous Reserve near the Rio Frio watershed in northern Costa Rica. Since my first visit to Costa Rica in 2011, I have had the privilege of learning from and working with members of the Maleku community and documenting life in their community.
