Zumbi was born free in Palmares, approximately in 1655, but was captured and Portuguese slavers when he was about six years. Zumbi escaped in 1670 and, at fifteen, he returned to his place of origin. Zumbi became known for his skill and cunning in battle and was already a respected military strategist when he spent twenty years of age. In 1675, during an attack of the Portuguese was taken a mocambo, which was recovered shortly after Zumbi and his troops, adding to his reputation as a warrior.

Zumbi dos Palmares is today, for the Brazilian population, a symbol of resistance. (by Federico Franzolini)
