Memorial of the Indigenous Peoples, Brasilia

(1.9/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Designed by modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer, Memorial of the Indigenous Peoples was inspired by the round huts of the Yanomami people. The interior space in which the collection of indigenous artifacts is displayed, accessed by a ramp, surrounds a circular, glass-fronted courtyard. Of note amongst the collection are the feather art of the Urubu-Kaapor, wooden benches of the Yawalapiti, Kuikuro and Jurunas, and masks and musical instruments of the Alto Xingu and Amazonas regions.

  • I believe that the indigenous culture would fill more spaces in this memorial. To enter has some pictures and most popular objects. A pamphlet about the place. A work by the end of the course you're a little race with maps of Brasilia to deliver to the group that I participated. I think it's more valued for being the work of Oscar Niemeyer than by which they are exposed. Visit rapida.
