So who is Panamanian? Who is American? Who is or was an expatriate? Who is native-born?
The many shades
of Panagringos

photos by Eric Jackson, except as noted

It may be true that in the USA relatively few people know more about Panama than that there is a canal here and we once had a dictator named Noriega. But there is a long and complicated relationship between the two countries, which expresses itself on personal levels in terms of a spectrum of cultural blends, languages, dual citizenship, naturalization, residency of one country's citizens in the other, members of immediate families with different nationalities, people who went to the other country but then returned and so on. Try to figure out who's Panamanian and who's American, and in which ways, among the people in these photos. There are a few "pure" Americans and a few "pure" Panamanians here, but mostly it's a collection of complicated stories.
