In 1695 after the fall of Palmares, one of history's largest and longest-lasting fugitive-slave settlements, Indigenous people who participated in its defeat staked claim to land promised to them by the Portuguese crown. For multiple reasons and in multiple ways, their history has been systematically silenced. This presentation examines this largely unexamined story while seeking to place in dialogue insights from Indigenous and diaspora Studies.
