La relation symbolique des migrants de l'Ouest du Kenya à leur région d'origine

Claire Médard

Abstract

Migrants from Western Kenya appear to hold a strong attachment to their region of origin. Even though some migrants rarely return "home", some ceremonies such as funerals are still organised in their home districts. In spite of migration, the idea that a man needs to own a piece of ancestral land in order to fulfill his social obligations, still lingers on. How else can it be explained that women and children are left behind to tend to a piece of land while their husbands and fathers leave sometimes never to return, except to buried ? (Résumé d'auteur)
