About Maria Felipa de Oliveira
Maria Felipa de Oliveira, who gives the name to the CCORELB medal of honor, was born, on an unregistered date, on the island of Itaparica, in Bahia. Some records point to Maria Felipa as a black woman, seafood collector, fisherman and who, alongside Maria Quitéria and Joana Angélica, participated in the fight for the Independence of Bahia. Reports about the life of Maria Felipa show that a group led by her was, for many years, responsible for the defense of the coast of the Island of Itaparica. The group is attributed with burning about 40 Portuguese vessels.
The College of Electoral Corregedores do Brasil traditionally holds two annual meetings, attended by Ministers of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), Electoral Corregedores of the TREs, members of the collegiate, auxiliary judges of the respective Corregedorias and civil servants, as well as guest speakers.
