One is known as Kuna, Cuna, San Blas Kuna or Island Kuna, and the other is known as Border Kuna or Mountain Kuna.They are seen as dialects of a single language, though some linguistics think of them as closely related languages.

The Congreso Nacional Kuna decided on a spelling reform for the Kuna language.
