João Pacheco de Oliveira, Professor of Anthropology, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and Curator of the Ethnology Collections, National Museum of Brazil
Anthropologist João Pacheco de Oliveira will discuss the Brazilian government’s policy for indigenous and black communities known as “pacification.” Drawing from his award-winning book, O Nascimento do Brasil e outros ensaios (Contra Capa, 2016), he offers an alternative interpretation of Brazilian history from the viewpoint of its native peoples. Using ethnographic comparisons between indigenous groups and black communities living in Brazilian suburbs and favelas, he will highlight the persistence of colonial practices in the prevailing forms of prejudice, racism, and intolerance in contemporary Brazil. This event aims to support the revitalization initiative #OMuseuNacionalVive.

Following the presentation, Sidney Chalhoub, Professor of History and of African and African American Studies at Harvard University, will offer closing remarks.
Presented in collaboration with the Harvard University Native American Program and the National Museum of Brazil.

Lecture. Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
