The word quetzal is from the ancient Aztec language Nahuatl word quetzal, which translated means large brilliant tail feather. Today a Quetzal is a wondrous sight for anyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse of this majestic bird. The Adult quetzal is about 14 inches (35 cm) long and the males tail feather can grow to more than 30 inches (75cm). Their head and upper plumage are an intense and glittering green while their lower breast, belly and under tail are usually a deep red or crimson. The females have a much more subdued plumage and lack the long tail. They are primarily fruit eaters although they also feed off small insects. They are shy creatures and easiest to see in the early morning. The Resplendent Quetzal is found only in the cloud-forests of the Central American highlands. They are usually found at altitudes of 4,000 to 10,500 feet in oak forests with high canopies. In Panama they can primarily by found in the cloud forests of Chiriqui around Volcan Baru.

In a span of less than one hundred years, Spain had gained control of lands and fortunes so vast and so diverse that the mere logistics of management would have been overwhelming even with the technology of the XXI century, yet they managed without it. The Spanish crown established The Council of the Indies to supervise and control every aspect of life in the New World. A unique concept for its time, it became the network that managed the Empire. It set forth the guidelines and, with king after king, produced laws that evolved over time and became known as The Laws of the Indies. These laws governed the society, politics and economics of life in the Americas. There were ordinances concerning discovery, land, city planning, building codes, economics, community, treatment.., essentially these laws covered every aspect of colonial life. The Laws of the Indies are considered a benchmark of community planning. in Panama. Peru and Mexico had been conquered; Spain was the global power of the day.

There were ships requiring stores or repairs to head out in search of new conquests or to transport the kings treasure. The mule trains that carried the Incan treasure across to Portobelo and Nombre de Dios needed mules, and conquistadores needed horses. They also needed the more mundane things like cloth, was dependent on the colony sustaining itself. West of Panama City lay the province of Veragua. The western portion of that province is what we know today as Chiriqui, a land of good fertile earth, with abundant water, It all began in Remedios. In 1589, on the banks of the San Flix River, Capitn Martn Gutirrez founded Nuestra Seora De Remedios. Located on the river with access to the sea it was the perfect gateway and it would become the seat of government and thriving commercial center of the province. It became the transshipment port that supplied the raw materials, the corn, cattle, pork and lumber that sustained the colony. In the XVII century Remedios was raided by the liability, rather than an asset. The seat of government moved rdenes religiosas estaban comprometidas a convertir a los sirvientes y esclavos deban ser alimentados, albergados y visiones o reparaciones para salir en busca de nuevas conDios, necesitaban mulas y los conquistadores necesitaban El triunfo de estas colonias dependa solamente de que pudiAl oeste de Panam se encuentra la provincia de Veragua, la parte occidental de esa provincia, es lo que hoy se conoce Remedios, situada al lado del ro y con acceso al mar, era el paso perfecto, la sede del gobierno y el centro de comercio

All were established with two objectives in mind -provide for the colony and convert the Indians, the aboriginals that the Spanairds continued to refer to as the Indians long after it was clear they had not arrived in India. AlWhereas one of the most important things in which the Audiencias (justice system) is to serve us is in taking very special care of the good treatment of the Indians and their preservation . The encomienda system, a labor system, was prescribed by the Council and the laws. The system was created to establish social stability, and to evangelize and protect the Amerindians from harsh and unjust treatment. The Spanish crown promised to protect them; the encomenderos (Spanish farm and business owners) were expected to maintain order, protect and provide for their charges needs and provide catechism. In turn, they had the right to use them for labor and tax them. They were not given judicial authority. The Amerindians were to maintain their land rights and ownership and expected to provide labor in return. As any law is only as good as its enforcement, this system not only did not work, in its clever corruptions it became a system of oppression. que provea materia prima, maz, ganado, carne de cerdo y glo XVII, Remedios fue atacada por sorpresa por piratas del traslad a Santiago, una parada del tren mula, y Remedios Durante los siguientes doscientos aos, surgieron aldeas y poblaciones misioneras alrededor de esta rea, la que se conoce como Chiriqu, las cuales se establecieron con dos propsitos: abastecer a la colonia y convertir a los aborgenes, mucho despus de tener claro que no haban llegado a la vir a los espaoles y stos a su vez, tendran especial cuidado encomienda era un sistema laboral prescrito por el Concejo social, evangelizar y proteger a los amerindios de cualquier

escapes 25 To the west of Remedios, on the banks of the Chiriqui River, Pedro de Montilla Aasco founded the town of Santiago de Alanje, otherwise known as Chiriqui in 1591. By 1606, the town, made up of fourteen bohios and a little chapel, had a small Spanish population living peacefully among the natives. It was an active port and stop on the mule train to Costa Rica. Montilla Aasco was very involved with the European colonization of the Chiriqui area and known to be just and fair in his treatment of the Amerindians. He was a cattle pioneer with a sizable herd, for the time, with 600 head This was not a sustainable peace and in other sites it was never fair or peaceful. 1602 is one date linked to the founding of David by the Por tuguese governor Juan Lopez de Segueira who designated the site, The Pueblo de David. Some historians attribute the name David as Segueiras desire to honor the Biblical King David and his supposed Jewish background. Another approximate date accepted as the founding of San Jose De David, as we now know, it is between 1732 and 1736, by the Bishop of Panama, Pedro Morcillo Rubio y Aun. Those who believe the second version will argue that, in 1602, it could have hardly been more than a pastoral outpost for the cattle ranchers at Alanje. It was one or the other or both; what is not disputable is that it was just a small town.

David developed economically in parallel with the rest of Chiriqui. As its list of exportable raw materials slowly expanded, so did David. David also suffered the same setbacks as a result of the native insurgencies and decline of the Spanish Empire, but it never looked back. By the close of the XVIII century, independence was in the air and, by 1821, Latin America was independent. Panama became part of Gran Colombia, and David became the governmental capital of the district. In 1849, the province of Chiriqui was created by decree. San Flix de Guaymi, 1606, and, San Lorenzo de Guaymi, 1626, were founded as mission towns. Close to Remedios, and within easy access to shipping, they provided the colony with corn and pork. It is interesting to note that in San Flix the still existing parochial records show its natives were resistant to conversion and, therefore, few baptisms, marriages or funerals were registered. San Lorenzo, on the other hand, appears to have enjoyed more enlightened missionaries and appears to have had a higher than most conversion rate, likely related to the missionaries willingness to respect the atribuyeron el nombre de David como el deseo de Segueira Como todos ya sabemos, otra fecha aproximada y aceptada como la fundacin de San Jos de David, es entre 1732 y mentaban que en 1602, difcilmente pudo haber existido una era una simple parada entre Remedios y Alanje, conectada por el tren mula a Amrica Central, Santiago de Veraguas, 1756, el censo registrado en la Ermita de San Jos de David, la describa como una aldea de 1000 individuos, 158 casas y su lista de materia prima se expanda para la exportacin, as reveses como resultado de las insurgencias nativas y decliform parte de la Gran Colombia y David se convirti en la

Although founded as a mission town, one of its functions was to provide manpower to work on government farms and ranches for the audiencia. It produced corn and beasts of burden, fundamentally important assets for agriculture and transportation. The founding of San Francisco de Dolega in 1637 is somewhat confusing and mysterious, both in name origen and loction. Today, Dolega is on the Boquete highway at approximately 245mt altitude; however, this location seems to be its second tion was in the higher elevations close to Boquete. Of the various theories about the name, the most convincing is that it comes from Dolegaya, a famous cacique of the time. What is well known and documented is as the Spaniards moved into the higher elevations, it was here that they truly felt the the Spanish encomanderos and missionaries met an enemy dedicated to resisting any invasion of their territory. It was not only a conventional war, but a war of will as well. Finally, because of the technological advantages of the time the missionaries endured. Those natives who did not retreat to the hills, although not entirely subdued, functioned as part of the mission. The Doraces even those who did not retreat, never formally surrendered. They produced mules, cattle and pork, but were always plagued with transportaSan Flix de Guaymi en1606 y San Lorenzo de Guaymi Cerca de Remedios y de fcil acceso por barco, provea a en San Flix los expedientes parroquiales, an existentes, muestran que sus nativos eran resistentes a la conversin y por lo tanto muy pocos bautizos, matrimonios y funerales disfrutaba de misioneros ms instruidos y al parecer esta situacin probablemente relacionada con el hecho de que los misioneros estaban dispuestos a respetar la cultura y las poblacin misionera, una de sus funciones era proveer mano son un activo verdaderamente importante para la agricultura en 1637 es un tanto confusa y misteriosa en lo que a origen Algunos historiadores piensan que su primera ubicacin esvarias teoras acerca de su nombre, la ms convincente viene

The settlement lay at 200mts altitude, between the Esti and Guacala Rivers to the east and the Chiriqui River to the west. By this time, Indian affairs were administered to by Indians, in the sense that they elected mayors and representatives of their communities and somewhat governed themselves. This mission also seems to have had more success in conver sion; in spite of the fact that the Guacala tribe was known, along with the Doraces and Chanquinas, for their very hostile and aggressive nature. By the end of the XVIII century, they were farming and providing cattle, horses, and goats. A year later, 1767, the town of San Miquel De Boqueron was founded after many failed attempts.

It is said that St. Michael was chosen as the patron saint in hopes of uniting these consummate warriors under a saint known for bravery and courage. Although records show some success in conversions, most of the tribe eventually disappeared into the mountains and continued to threaten the faithful. In September, 1788, a violent native uprising took place. The encomanderos abuse of power, the repression and the loss of their lands were manifested in a native revolt that resulted in widespread death and destruction. They found no comfort in Christianity and saw the Church as an ally of the Spanish invaders rather than a refuge. The well meaning were devastated, the not so well meaning used it to justify and continue their abusive behavior. Some Indians became more hostile while others lost hope and became more submissive. At the end of the XVIII century, about 1794, the church of La Purisima Concepcion De Bugaba was established by the Franciscan fathers, at the site of a native settlement, Pueblo Viejo. Bugabas or Bugabaes was a famous cacique in the area. The new settlement was built around the church and replaced Pueblo Viejo, burned to the ground six years earlier during the hostilities of 1788.

By this time, the tribes were beginning to integrate and, others, fearing the loss of their tribal uniqueness were retreating farther into the mountains. In the almost 500 years since Capt. Gutierrez founded Remedios on the banks of the San Felix River, the land which was once called Veragua has never failed to sustain life in Panama. It is indeed that land of good fertile earth, abunstantial land of substantial people who, in spite of hardship and insurrection, have always proudly forged ahead with spirit and pride. The Chiricanos are a hardworking, homogenous people with all the tenacity and courage of their Spanish heritage. their native ancestors, makes them a formidable group dedicated to their land, values and beliefs.

In the early morning I leave the warmth of my cabin to explore and search this piece of paradise, so jealously guarded by Carlos Alfaro, who converted it into a must for international bird watchers. It is famous for being one of the few places in the world where the quetzal can be watched in the wild. In just a few steps with a few glances the feeling of magic invades me. I am invited by the silence and the pure water running in every creek. I am dominated by the sensation of being in a temple where the divine is manifested in Natures perfect balance. It seems unbelievable that just a few decades ago that the 200 year old, colossal trees were chopped down and this site was converted into a high plains pasture.Millones de gotas agua son atrapadas por esponjosas plantas areas que cuelgan de cada rama y se hospedan enroscadas en los troncos de los gigantes del bosque tropical, en un paraje de belleza indescriptible conocido como Los Quetzales, cercano a Cerro Punta, en las Desde muy tempranas horas del da he dejado el calor de la cabaa para explorar y registrar esta porcin del paraso, cuidado celosamente por Carlos Alfaro, que se ha convertido en punto obligatorio de visita para los observadores de aves del mundo, de fama mundial por ser uno de los pocos sitios para Con tan slo recorrer algunos pasos la magia del bosque ineste mismo sitio hubiera sido convertido en un gran pastizal, derrumbando colosos de ms de 200 aos, transformando el Linking two Oceans

She reveals her recuperative powers, she teaches us that left in peace; she tal services like mitigating the effect of global warming gases and protecting the watershed and its resources. The story of Los Quetzales shows us that all is not lost. That with willingness to reforest and efforts guarding against deforestation there can be a positive change in the crisis of global warming. The best lesson I take away from this visit is that it is the forests that are the best allies to reverse the process of global warming. Until now it has seemed unstoppable, but if we can repeat this example throughout the continent our youth will surely inherit a better planet. vitales servicios ambientales que cumple, cmo la mitigacin de gases de efecto invernadero, la proteccin de las cuencas y La historia de Los Quetzales seala que no todo est perdido, que con voluntad por reforestar y evitando la deforestacin, las cosas podran cambiar positivamente en relacin a la crisis La mayor leccin que me deja esta visita, es que los bosques seran los mejores aliados para revertir el incremento, hasta mos repetir en todo el continente el ejemplo de recuperacin que muestra el bosque de Los Quetzales, seguramente, nuesescapes 44

What is known is that there are risks factors like diabetes and pregnancy. Some measures that can help decrease the symptoms of car pal tunnel syndrome are in a neutral position Even though these measures may alleviate the symptoms, a compressed nerve, without treatment, inevitably will continue to deteriorate to a point where a full recovery may not be achieved.
