Abstract

Starting from the report of a dispute for land control in the town of Alcantara (Maranhao-Brasil) among the Department of Defense and a community formed by individuals of African origins (organized in the shape of a quilombolas community), we shall discuss the topics of ethnicity and also of those political projects originated from such matters. Moreover, we shall inspect the relations between cultural tradition, ethnicity, human rights and political representation.
