Everyone visiting Brazil must take a tour at Tiradentes. This area was enriched by gold found in nearby mountains. The miners kept African slaves to do their dirty work. The painting here is the jail. 'Regular' prisoners were kept in the building. African prisoners were kept under the jail and entered through a trap door.
A griot is an oral historian and teller of traditions. The way of the griot spread from West Africa to distant shores through trade and slave routes. This griot welcomed us and told us of the history of the Ivaporunduva quilombo.
The wealthy of Tiradentes were carried about by slaves on foot. This inhumane system thrived during the 1700's.
