The research presented here is the result of a case study on the Quilombola Rural Community de Velame, located 54 km away from the city of Vitória da Conquista, Bahia state, highlighting the analysis of public policies that have been taking place in the community since 2004, year in which it received the self-definition certificate from Palmares Cultural Foundation. This study was done based on a qualitative methodology, using the techniques of interviews using the technique. The legislation on land regularization of the federal government and the state of Bahia, as well as the Brazil Quilombo Program and the Identity Territories Program were important sources for the reflection upon the set of actions destined for the traditional people. We noted that the process of public policies development and management in the quilombo communities improved, both in the formulation and in the decentralized management through the creation of councils and boards, as these spaces became means of dialogue/communication between the government and the civil society. However, if on the one hand we noted that progress, on the other hand we realized that the designation of the quilombo lands, essential aspect for the production and reproduction of these communities, keeps walking in a very slowly way and, in the case of Velame, this is harmfull for the community's future.
