Coming from South America, “The Inỹ People of Central Brazil” is a collaboration between Te Manawa, Massey University and the Museu do Índio in Rio de Janeiro. It’s an insight into how indigenous people in a small area have preserved their unique heritage, in particular through the rituals that balance and preserve their way of life. Central to the exhibition are unique, ceramic figures called ritxoko. These are made by Inỹ women artists who proudly use their art form to maintain their tribe's cultural traditions. In a first, all of the featured bespoke, handcrafted artefacts will be available for purchase.
