Senora Prendergast's Spanish classes met the art of the Kuna people at the Hood Museum, then made their own Kuna-style designs. Senora Prendergast writes: The Kunas are a native Panamanian people who are allowed to maintain their own culture and administer their own territory on the country's Caribbean coast. Kuna women's blouses are textile artworks made with layers of appliques and reverse appliques in a colorful and playful style, and are now collected by museums around the world. HHS students took the Kuna blouses as models for their own paper Kuna-style designs. Students were given the choice of subjects from their own daily lives or from traditional Kuna themes.
