    Kuna, also known among themselves as the Tule, Native South American group of the Chibchan language family and of Panama. They now inhabit part of the country's northern shore and the neighboring San Blas Archipelago. In former times the Kuna occupied the greater part of the Isthmus of Panama. Cases of hereditary albinism among the Kuna have given rise to legends of white Native Americans.
