Quilombolas are inhabitants of quilombos, a typical phenomenon of the Americas. While in the period of slavery the term refers to African and Afro-descendant slaves who fled from sugarcane plantations and small farms (that existed in Brazil until abolition in 1888) to form small villages called quilombos, at the same time it refers to the descendants of these enslaved people, who live in rural communities characterized by subsistence farming and cultural manifestations that have a strong link to the African past.
