“Ruy Barbosa de Oliveira (November 5, 1849 – March 1, 1923) was a Brazilian polymath, diplomat, writer, jurist, and politician. Born in Salvador da Bahia, he was a federal representative, senator, Minister of Finance and diplomat. For his distinguished participation in the 2nd Hague Conference, he earned the nickname "Eagle of the Hague". He ran unsuccessfully for the Presidency of Brazil in 1910, 1914 and in 1919. Ruy Barbosa gave his first public speech for the abolition of slavery when he was 19. For the rest of his life he remained an uncompromising defender of civil liberties. Slavery in Brazil was finally abolished by the Lei Áurea ("Golden Law") in 1888. Part of Barbosa's legacy to history is that he authorised, as minister of finance on December 14, 1890, the destruction of most government records relating to slavery.[1] The avowed reason for this destruction, which took several years to be enacted and was followed by his successors, was to erase the "stain" of slavery on Brazilian history.[2] However, historians today agree that Barbosa aimed to impede any possible indemnization of the former slave-owners for this liberation.[2] Indeed, eleven days after the abolition of slavery, a law project was deposed at the Chamber, proposing some indemnization to the slave owners.[2] Barbosa's liberal ideas were influential in drafting of the first republican constitution. He was a supporter of fiat money, as opposed to a gold standard, in Brazil. During his term as finance secretary, he implemented far-reaching reforms of Brazil's financial regime, instituting a vigorously expansionist monetary policy. The result was chaos and instability: the so-called fiat experiment resulted in the bubble of encilhamento, a dismal politic-economic failure. Due to his controversial role during it, in the following administration of Floriano Peixoto, he was forced into exile until Floriano's term ended. Years later, after his return he was elected as a Senator. He headed the Brazilian delegation to the 2nd Hague Conference and was brilliant in its deliberations. As candidate of the Civilian Party in the presidential election of 1910, Barbosa waged one of the most memorable campaigns in Brazilian politics. He was not successful and lost to Marshal Hermes da Fonseca. He ran again in the elections of 1914 and 1919, both times losing to the government candidate. During World War I, he played a key role among those who advocated the Allied cause, arguing that Brazil should be more involved in the war. Barbosa died in Petrópolis, near Rio de Janeiro in 1923.[3] Museu-casa (ou casa-museu) é um tipo de museu que, abrigado num imóvel que serviu como casa de alguém, busca preservar a forma original, os objetos e o ambiente em que viveu aquela pessoa ou grupo de pessoas. Assim, conjuga a arquitetura, a museografia e a coleção para criar um cenário histórico, oferecendo uma perspectiva de um estilo de vida. Em 1997, durante a conferência "Living History. Historic House Museums", no Palazzo Spinola, em Gênova, representantes de museus-casas de diversos países iniciaram um movimento para criar, no âmbito do International Council of Museums,um comitê especialmente dedicado a esta categoria de instituição. No ano seguinte, o ICOM criou o Demhist (Comitê Internacional para Museus-Casas Históricas). (Wikipedia)”

“Featuring multimedia exhibitions on Brazil’s northern tribes, the small Museu do Índio provides an excellent introduction to the economic, religious and social life of Brazil’s indigenous people. Next to native food and medicinal plants, the four life-size dwellings in the courtyard were actually built by four different tribes. As a branch of Funai (the National Indian Foundation), the museum contains an excellent archive of more than 14,000 objects, 50,000 photographs and 200 sound recordings. Its indigenous ethnography library containing 16,000 volumes by local and foreign authors is open to the public during the week.”
