Ten days later, during the carnivals of February 1925, a rebellion broke out in San Blas, led by Nele Kantule and Simral Colman. The indigenous people attacked the police barracks in Narganá, Playón Chico, Río Tigre, Tigantikí and other points, where a large part of the garrison and even some civilians were executed.
The balance was 27 dead. The Chiari government immediately sought an understanding with the rebels. A contingent was sent and an Official Commission was appointed headed by the Secretary of Government and Justice Carlos L. López.
On March 4, the government and indigenous representatives reached a peace agreement, under the watchful eye of John Glover South, Minister of the United States in Panama. The indigenous people were promised better treatment, respect for their customs and not to impose schooling on them. Although the Panamanian authorities required Marsh, he managed to flee protected by the North American Legation.
At the end of that year, the Darien Vicariate was created under which the San Blas Intendancy was assigned. Given that the agreement was not fully complied with, in 1930 the government of Florencio Harmodio Arosemena issued the Indigenous Reserve Law. Also, in 1925, Chiari had to face another conflict, when the tenant strike occurred. The problem was long-standing, but it erupted around this time in the heat of difficult economic conditions and the spread of anarchist and left-wing ideas.
The frightened government requested the landing of marines to control the situation.
On the 12th, 600 marines landed in the terminal cities, raiding the League's offices and destroying its archives. The occupation lasted for a few days and there were new clashes with the tenants. According to the Supreme Court of Justice, the movement was aimed at overthrowing the government and establishing a revolutionary Bolshevik regime.
Be that as it may, this state of affairs continued latent and, in April 1926, a Commission was appointed to prepare a tenant bill. But the problem was not solved and it resurfaced strongly in 1932 in the heat of the depression of the 1930s.
