The exhibit depicts various aspects of the daily life of the indigenous peoples in our Hemisphere: their culture, work, art, history, and environment. It offers a glimpse of 21 photographs selected on the basis of their beauty, creativity, and originality from 520 images submitted. “Kayapó Body Painting” -- the photo that won first prize -- captures children expressing themselves through art in the Kayapó community in the Brazilian Amazon.

This initiative forms part of the Department of international Law's Program of Action on the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas.
