This exhibit from the National Endowment for the Humanities explores how African cultures blended with indigenous and colonial Portuguese traditions to form the unique, vibrant, and complex cultural mosaic of present-day Brazil. Photographs and works of popular art, including sculptures, paintings, prints, religious objects, toys, and booklets of poetry introduce the festivals, heroes, and spiritual traditions of Brazil’s Northeast Region and its Nordestinos.
