Alabaster-skinned people born on a sun-scorched group of islands off Panama's Caribbean coast are venerated as Children of the Moon. Albinos make up between 5 and 10 percent of the roughly 80,000 indigenous Gunas who live on the mainland of the Guna Yala region and its islands. With their sensitive skin and eyes, young Guna albinos must be shuttled to and from school, avoiding the baking heat, while they watch their friends play in the streets. June 13th is International Albinism Awareness Day. Reuters photographer Carlos Jasso documented a community of Children of the Moon on
Ailigandi Island in the Guna Yala region, Panama.
