The Guarani Altar
The Guarani Altar: A Donation Tells a Deep Story
“I know many people don’t know how we really live and taking this altar to the Museum we can show them our culture. That they know about our existence is of utmost importance to us.
“I agreed to the Marangatu for the Museum so that everyone knows about our culture. For me it is important to have the Yvyra Marangatu in this Museum in the United States because then our culture will be recognized in the United States. I am happy that many people could see our culture. That was the reason why I consented to the altar, so people know. I hope to go there [to the Museum] one day and be able to talk about our beliefs.”
