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.

  • After visiting the Memorial JK, I know the Indian Memorial. The space is interesting, in the shape of a hollow, but I found it very poorly leveraged.

  • I loved the exhibition that was going on when I went, I was not a long time but I took at MAX. The space is huge.

  • I found the place little explored, especially by the indigenous history and culture that is very rich. I thought that the space can be best leveraged even more standing in front of another landmark of the city.
