In English, German, and Brazilian Indigenous languages
Curt Nimuendajú was born in Jena, Germany in 1883. Unable to afford a university education, he emigrated to Brazil in 1903, where after a couple of years he began study on the Guaraní people. Over the course of forty years of fieldwork he became a specialist on numerous indigenous peoples of interior Brazil. Nimuendajú died during an ethnographic survey in 1945. The Curt Nimuendajú archives were housed at the National Museum of Brazil. They were completely destroyed by fire in September, 2018.
Transferred from the John Howland Rowe papers (BANC MSS 2006/175).
