The MultiethnicVillage’s space

Features

The Multiethnic Village has five traditional indigenous houses (Kayapó / Mebengôkré, Alto Xingu, Krahô, Guarani Mbya and Fulni-ô) and one of the Kalunga Historical Sites, all of which were built in an open, circular format like a large village.  It is gradually transformed by the participating peoples, who transfer to them the main aspects of their occupations and territorial organization and architecture. Plantations and fruit trees were planted in the yards of each house in order to demonstrate the ways of cultivation and traditional foods of the represented people.
