Our work with the Kayapó on the Darrell Posey photograph and manuscript collection
The Museum is working with scholars and Kayapó community members on research and education outcomes centred on an important collection of Kayapó photographs and documents made by the ethnobiologist Darrell Posey in the 1980s. In 2020 a former collaborator of Darrell's, Payakã, spoke to researcher Elaine Elisabetsky about the importance of the collection to the community and the need for more research and educational resources based on it. If you would like to help support this project, please do get in touch.
