Indigenous masks to musical instruments

Alan Taha

Tucked in amongst the hustle and bustle of Rua Augusta is Helena Shizue Yamanaka’s store, Iandé, meaning ‘ours’ in Tupi-Guarani. Before opening the shop in 2000, Helena developed her passion for and knowledge of indigenous objects whilst working at FUNAI. Iandé sells artefacts from more than eighty tribes, including basketry, hammocks, pottery, masks, stools, musical instruments and ornaments, amongst others. All the products come with a useful descriptive booklet that includes the history of the tribe, as well as information about the object.
