Title: Maroon Settlements And Colonial Authorities: Palmares, Cucaú And The Limits Of Freedom In Late Seventeenth-century Pernambuco [marronnage Et Pouvoir Colonial: Palmares, Cucaú Et Les Frontières De La Liberté Au Pernambouc à La Fin Du Xviie Siècle]
Author: Lara S.H.
Abstract: This article focuses on the peace agreement signed in 1678 between Ganga Zumba, leader of Palmares, the largest and longest-lived maroon settlement in the history of slavery in Brazil, and the colonial authorities in Pernambuco, in the Northeast State of Brazil, which establish the aldeia of Cucaú. It examines the context of the negotiations, the connections with the debates on the freedom of Indians in Brazil, and the controversies that were raised by the emancipation conceded to those born in Palmares and, later, by the re-enslavement of the inhabitants of Cucaú. The characteristics and the circumstances of the agreement of 1678 disclose important aspects of the slaves' fights and the dilemmas lived in the end of eighteenth century in Pernambuco, Brazil and Portugal in relation to the slavery and freedom of blacks and Indians in the Portuguese colonial empire.
