    TRONCO TUPI: Brasilian Indian artifacts

    by cochinjew Written Jun 6, 2003

    I asked Nina, paulista who with her husband runs this nice shop: do you get htese artifacts and artesenal items directly from the indians . she said .. yes, we try to avoid the middleman. I had met mr walter in a shop in sao paolo and she said walter helps her a lot..
    i am pleasantly surprised at the positive view of the aboriginal people in Brasil. In a recent survey over 3/4 of the brasilians polled exressed respect for the indigenous ways and traditions
    As the late Laurens Van der post expressed so elegantly in his books on bushmen..it is onlyhwhen the white man who has taken everything from the native and forced christianity onto them, only when these people learn to respect the bushmen, australian aborigines, the indians , would the situation with these ancient peoples improve..

    What to buy: genuine articles made by and sometimes used by the indians living far away from the cities of brasil...nina has books with pictures and also the various localities the indians could be found...

    What to pay: the prices are reasonable when you think about the scarcityof items and the increased demands by foreigners
