Diasporic living in Quilombola communities: empowerment, self-reflection and new sociabilities in the Rio dos Macacos community

Juliana Cézar Nunes, Dione Oliveira Moura


In what way the empowerment process in Quilombola community Rio dos Macacos has produced a reflexive capacity and new sociabilities? We propose this reflection based on the thought of Stuart Hall. We consider that Quilombola communities rely on an accrual of diasporic experiences to reinforce resistance movement. In the empowerment process of Rio dos Macacos community, we have observed the reflexive capacity within the stories, documents and on the campaign "Somos todos Rio dos Macacos" [We are all Rio dos Macacos"]. New sociabilities were established on the campaign, in 2012, as well as in the oficial territory delimitation as a quilombo remainder community, in 2015.
