The constructed space plays a crucial role in the memory and sustenance of Indigenous communities in Brazil. Despite this significance, the preservation efforts of Indigenous architecture by the National Institute of Historic and Artistic Heritage (Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional - IPHAN) have yet to fully incorporate this element. This seminar investigates how the Institute approached Indigenous heritage since 1937, navigating intellectual confrontations across diverse Brazilian cultural institutions and addressing the limited discourse surrounding Indigenous architecture. The seminar will delve into specific cases based on archival research drawn from multiple Brazilian states.

Presented in collaboration with the Native Cultures of the Americas
