Huetar People

Esmeralda of the indigenous Huetar people group

The people of the Huetar tribe number about 2,600. They live in the remote and lush mountains of north-central Costa Rica.

Esmeralda is among the few people in her community that continue to craft the Huetar pottery, woven textiles, and musical instruments. In addition, she teaches classes on these arts to her people as well as anyone with interest.
