The exhibition “Yawalapiti – Entre Tempos” opens at Museu Nacional da República on April 19 and will be open to visitation until May 20.

Award-wining French photographer Olivier Boëls has lived with the native community Yawalapiti for over 5 years. The result is 80 photographs that show the daily routine of the tribe.

The opening of the exhibition takes place on April 19 and features the presence of 45 members of the tribe Yawalapiti. The natives themselves were in charge of writing the captions of the photos and the explanatory texts. The writings will be presented in the Yawalapiti language and translated into Portuguese, preserving the grammatical construction of the original language.

Ninety members of the Yawalapiti community will take turns throughout the exhibition season, debating with the audience. At the museum, they will make presentations of ritual songs and dances.
