Quilombolas' communities and the creation of meaning for the Brazilian governmental policies: How cultural events can guide and determine some of the outputs of these policies

Fernando da Costa Cardoso


ABSTRACT: The main objective in this paper, the first of a series dedicated to understand the position of the quilombos and quilombolas and the dramatic changes that they are suffering in the last decades, will be to present how the quilombolas can offer an example of the failures of the attempts to define those groups even with the uses of the rhetoric of the identity. In spite of those definitional attempts those groups are inserted, maybe in an extraneous way, in the governmentality policies and in this way they should develop strategies to lead with those changes. One of those strategies is related with the cultural events that are a central part int heir possibilities of continuation and in their ways to give meanings and adapt the new state policies that appeared in the last few years in Brazil.

KEYWORDS: Quilombos, Brazil, Human rights.
