In view of the conflicts deriving from land titling policies in Remaining Quilombola Communities in the Ribeira Valley, this work sought to understand how the use of cartography as the management technology by the State enables the meeting of two perspectives: one that walks with souls, shapes and reshapes the territory throughout the seasons, rituals and processions; and another that prepares genograms and guarantees land rights. The political and analytical centrality assumed by cartography in the field of public policies intended for quilombola communities (as evidenced by the multiplication and dissemination of geolocation devices) has offered a powerful field of research. Based on technical tools concerning these processes (planimetric survey maps, sketches of land use and occupation, descriptive specifications and anthropological reports), the ethnographic description sought to outline how this meeting of spatial perception technologies and techniques takes place and is stabilized in documents. However, with ethno mapping becoming more and more common, it seems appropriate to ask the following: can these two distinct ways of getting to know and weaving the world, from the more complex ethnomapping experience and the set of assumptions involved in this practice, create a dialogue and work together in a way that does not result in a relationship of subordination, forms of domination or power asymmetries?
