Return of the Indian Museum in Rio to indigenous

Petition letter:

“The State Government of Rio de Janeiro wants to tear down the building to make room for improvements around the stadium. The works would be required to meet the requirements of Fifa, regarding the adequacy of the maracana Stadium to host the Confederations Cup games. Fifa, however, in documents submitted to the public defender of the Union denied that requires the demolition of the building. ” Built in the 19th century, the building was the headquarters of the Indian protection service. We need to pressure the Government to overturn this historic heritage, turning it into a hotel of transition and area culture for the Indians who need to come to the city, be it for exposure of their handicrafts, for presentations in universities, schools for meetings with Governments … is to… your need. We cannot allow a historical heritage with so many stories can be demolished and turned into a parking lot or anything else. Lisbela Lane Social Scientist UFBA”
