On August 25th the Dresden Ethnography Museum welcomes Gerd Baumann and Robert Spitzer from the Eerepami Regenwaldstiftung Guyana for a Dresden Ethnography Museum Talk.
Since 2004 Gerd and Robert have been working in Guyana on numerous projects aimed at preserving both the traditional culture of the native Makushi population as well as the natural environment in which they live.
In the course of their talk the pair will discuss specific projects, including a project to bring Solar power to the Makushi and of the difficulties in balancing the conflicts that can arise between traditional and modern ways of life
