Prompted by tourist commentary that describes an Emberá community in

concepts when used to refer to cultural practices of indigenous communities.

Emberá indigenous tourism, the tourists’ search for an authenticity uncorrupted

related to diverse sets of cultural practices not only in the past, but also in
