Anthropology Building « previous 6 of 7 next »
World's Fair New York 1853
Guinea hut « previous 6 of 7 next »

The ethnography exhibits by the south lagoon were meant to support the Anthropology Building and to display the dwellings and daily life of the people and cultures on display. The hut shown was supposed to represent a typical dwelling of the native people of Guyana. The original inhabitants of Guyana were the Arawaks and Caribs. Christopher Columbus sighted Guiana, as it was originally called, in 1498 during his third voyage.
