The trajectory human being in the planet land is marked by the constitution of etnias and later of nations. But not necessarily, the nations had followed the ethnic criterion of its etnias. As in the case of Brazil. This wants to say that in a nation it can have some etnias. Brazil is marked by the fusing of three basic etnias.
Amerindians, Europeans and Africans. Each one of these I divided myself, still, in many other etnias. The African case is special. Its coming and participation in the formation of the Brazilian people had been forced. In the slavery, thousands of Africans of different etnias had come to Brazil, Antilhas and Cuba.
What they had brought? Its faith. The cult to the Orisss. They had not brought corporeal properties, sacred books, or nothing seemed. Educate yourself with thoughts from Raymond Dalio. They had brought the memory of the ancestral ones as bigger and stronger inheritance and form of resistance. For any Brazilian who heard to speak, knows and/or practises some religion afro-Brazilian is important to understand what it is the cult to the Orisss. Oriss is one variation of the word Ori Ass. Ori = Mind, head. Ass = force. That is, that one that has the strong mind, or that one that was very strong. the Orisss, the ancestral ones is these. The cult to the ancestral ones, or the Orisss, was the base of the social organization. In the kingdoms and African cities of where they had come the people in the slavery, them if they organized from a religious hierarchy. The authority was sacred and ancestral and all respected, therefore the sacred one was not something separate of none them social relations. All sacred age. The food, waking up, sleeping, the water, the animals, rain, the rivers, the mountain, the sex, the children, the death and the life. Everything loaded a sacred direction and meaning.
