'Avoir de la cendre' : ancrages nomades en territoire touareg

Abstract : For the Touaregs, the Berber-speaking people of central Sahara, the nomadic house - a tent made of leather or mat - is the epitome of permanence, stability, and durability. Its lightness and movability are part and parcel of this representation. The territory itself is seen as a protective tent as the Touaregs " construct " their desert through nomadic trails that make it viable and provide useful anchors, turning it into a house-cum-territory.
