"That the ancients said": uses and methods of oral history

José Luiz Xavier Filho
Published September 2021

Abstract

By assuming itself as a contemporary manifestation, oral history maintains an inevitable link with the immediate, and this requires recognizing the link of memory with ways of narrating, establishing links with the identity of the interviewed group and thus refers to the construction of similar communities. Analysing the quilombola community is taking a trip and venturing into their narratives, as it is through oral tradition that the knowledge of their ancestors is preserved. These lines are transmitted from one generation to another, and that is how they arrive today. Our objective is to build the history of the Quilombo Sambaquim, through the valorisation and appropriation of the narratives told by the members of the community as well as its historical legacy, making an analogy between its slave past, the story about its ancestors, and the present time of community, in view of the contributions established in the construction of the identity and ancestry of its residents.
