The Guna First Nation of Kuna Yala (San Blas Islands) celebrates the Revolution of February 25, 1925 in an annual, early morning march throughout the Community of Ustupu! The community of Ustupu is the birthplace of Nele Kantule, the leader of the Revolution that freed Guna Yala from the oppressive, abusive and dictatorial rule of the Republic of Panama of that era.

The Guna First Nation has retained their language, culture, spirituality and autonomy since that time. The ancient Indigenous symbol on the Kuna First Nation flag, sometimes called the "Circle of Life" or the "Whirling Logs", is found in Indigenous Nations across the Americas, including the Hopi and Yakima Nations in North America. The “Circle of Life” turns in the opposite direction of the Nazi Swastika.

The Kuna First Nation is composed of 51 communities stretched across 350 Islands in a territory 232 miles long and 130 square miles. The Kuna First Nation is governed by two General Congress Kuna's. One General Congress takes care of all political and economic issues and the other cares for all spiritual and cultural issues. Each General Congress meets twice a year.

For the first time in Kuna history an Indigenous Spiritual Leader from outside Kuna Yala was honored by the Community of Ustupu to lead the Annual February 25 march celebrating the Revolution that freed the Kuna Nation from colonial rule. Another reflection of the unfolding fulfillment of the Prophecy of the Reunion of the Condor and Eagle.
