Pelos caminhos do Jongo

The Ecological Protection Society in Angra dos Reis (SAPE) operates in the areas of environmental education, ecotourism, and the strengthening of local culture. With the support of BrazilFoundation, a project was implemented to rescue cultural traditions including dance, artisan training, tourism, agro-forestry and digital inclusion. The project resulted in greater recognition of native ownership of the remaining Quilombo land, and the construction of the Santa Rita House, a center for cultural preservation. The project won first place in the Ministry of Culture’s Live Culture Prize.
