Children play and have fun in the river at São Raimundo Quilombo in Alcântara, Maranhão, Northeast Brazil. A quilombo is a Brazilian hinterland settlement founded by people of African origin. Most of the inhabitants of quilombos were escaped former slaves and, in some cases, a minority of marginalised non-slave Brazilians that faced oppression during colonization.
