República de Tule

República de Tule

República de Tule (1925), the name given by the Kuna people on the San Blas Islands off of Panama's Atlantic coast to their short-lived independence in 1925. Since colonial days the Kuna had always lived isolated from the rest of Panama, refusing to accept white rule. In February 1925, instigated by the former chargé d'affaires at the American legation in Panama, Richard O. March, they rose in rebellion against Panama and declared the region an independent republic. In the process many Panamanian police stationed in the area were killed. The government of Rodolfo Chiari quelled the rebellion, and a peace treaty was signed on 3 March 1925. March was declared persona non grata and expelled from the country.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
