Everyday objects, weapons, ornaments, musical instruments of about fifteen populations will be on display. You will learn a lot about these tribes, including the Wayana, Yanomami, Kayapó and Shuar.
Discover these peoples in symbiosis with the forest and their practice of shamanism, common to all populations in the Amazon basin.
A unique experience....
