Abstract: The Território Quilombola Kalunga de Goiás (TKG) was established by law nº. 11,409/GO, and was federally regularized as territory in 2009. Its total area covers three Municipalities of Goiás: Monte Alegre de Goiás, Teresina de Goiás and Cavalcante. There live remaining communities of quilombolas. The present work aims to evaluate the recurrence of fires in this Territory and in its surroundings, doing relationships between land use and land cover and burned areas. For this purpose, were used data generated from satellite images, made available in public databases, and procedures in GIS. During the annualized time, the frequency of fires was moderate. Grassland had the largest proportion of burned areas.
