Memorial dos Povos Indigenas


Praça do Buriti, Eixo Monumental Oeste

Open Hours

Tue-Fri: 9:00-18:00 Sat-Sun: 10:00-17:00


Architect Oscar Niemeyer modeled the Monument to the Indigenous Peoples on the houses of the Bororo Indians. Just before the memorial was completed it was redesignated as an arts museum, until the uproar caused it to be re-redesignated. So far, however, it seems underutilized. Varying exhibits highlight the art and daily life of Brazilian Indians. Headdresses of colorful feathers, pottery, baskets, hammocks, nets, spears, and paddles are on display.
