Abstract:This study attempts to unravel the relations established among several social players, when a 'resistance alliance' was organized by chiefs from Angoche, Sangage, Sancul and Quitangonha and the macua-imbamella and namarrais groups in the face of Portuguese government interference that resulted in a series of actions such as firearms, ammunition and warriors exchange and simultaneous attacks to administrative posts and Portuguese military in northern Mozambique at the turn of the XIXth century. Key study lines focus on the triggering factors of these interventions and on how parties involved in the 'resistance alliance' organized themselves.
