The fundamental elements of Paraguayan anthropology since the 1930s can be found in the Andrés Barbero Ethnographic Museum. It all started with an in-situ study of the indigenous people who lived in Chaco, following the trail of prehistoric sites and the objects that had been found there. Researcher Andrés Barber was appointed captain of the expedition, led by the Scientific Society of Paraguay, and was responsible for the study of various tribes throughout the country, for the purpose of developing an ethnographic and anthropological map of Paraguay. This led to the discovery of which indigenous ethnicity dominated each region before the arrival of Spanish colonization. And there is even more: in the Ethnographic Museum twenty indigenous communities are described that still survive today; according to the latest studies, there are 20 different ethnic groups grouped into five linguistic families. If you want to feel like an explorer, make sure you visit this museum.
