Handling of crises in Makili (Atauro): Old and new challenges to a model of alliances

Abstract

Handling of crises in Makili (Atauro): Old and new challenges to a model of alliances Atauro's history is marked by droughts, famines and inter-and intra-island conflicts. The paper explores these various crises and examines the alliances that the local society of Makili, in the south-east of the island, had established in response to them: ancestral alliances with various elements of nature, generating solidarity between humans and non-humans; matrimonial alliances, sanctioned by the circulation of bridewealth binding the houses forming the local society. Despite the threats that modernity poses to these ancient alliances and notwithstanding new difficulties imposed by modern transformations, the inhabitants are confident in the resilience and coherence of their crisis management system.
