Based on a doctoral ethnographic research, this article analyzes the discussion on the mobilization of cultural elements and aesthetic resources by the leaders of the Remnant Community of Quilombo da Rasa, Armação dos Búzios, RJ, as a form of ethnic signage in a context of territorial disputes. Thus, this work considers the centrality of the expansion of the sociability network to provide the necessary actions in the political articulation by differentiated identity.
