La construction de territoires multisitués en Amazonie

Abstract : We explore the rationales behind the multi-sited territories of quilombolas communities (descendants of maroons) in the Amazon. Their mobility systems, based on family residential dispersion and complementarities, run on remote spaces, both rural and urban. A system of collective rules of membership and rights ensures territorial continuity between spaces, and gives a sense to the multisited territory. We then discuss the challenges associated with the recent reconfiguration of these areas, in the light of changes in production systems and demands on environmental management.
