Faire dessiner le terrain : La nature à " risques " et les jardins de subsistance à Tanna et Tongoa (Vanuatu)

Abstract : This paper would like to reflect on the contributions of picture drawing within the framework of ethnographic research about various aspects of nature. It uses a corpus of hundred of collected drawings during the years 2011 and 2012, on Tongoa and Tanna, two volcanic islands of Vanuatu. The villagers have accepted to draw their natural environment which can be disrupted or wiped out by frequent cyclical and life-threatening events (cyclones, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, animals, menstruations). This figurative technique lets the peoples' representations about their envi¬ronment appear and makes the discussion easier when speaker is embarrassed by the evoked subject. Moreover, it allows new essential interactions with the fieldwork, which improves the progress of the ethnographic research.
