The peoples of oiapoque and the Kuahí Museum



Regina Abreu



Anthropologist Lux Vidal talks about her work with the indigenous peoples of Oiapoque, who belong to a variety of ethnic groups and her experience at the Kuahí Museum. . In 1998, leaders of those groups asked the Government of the State of Amapá for a museum. Since then, this museum has been a place for mediation and articulation between the indigenous peoples, the State and civil society. The possibility it opened up for conceiving and setting up exhibitions about different themes in indigenous daily life, has been a major force for the Peoples of Oiapoque, and their affirmation of ethnic identity.
