A propos de cet article

Language: French . Brand New Book. This book is based on an articulate oral rendition of the history of the Haayre by Aamadu Baa Digi, a griot at the court of Dalla. It was made at the request of two anthropologists, Mirjam de Bruijn and Han van Dijk, with permission of the then ruling leader. This fascinating part of history of this lesser known region would have sunk into oblivion, had it not been recorded in 1991, two years before Aamadu Baa Digi passed away. The kings that have ruled over the Haayre in Mali are all descendants of its first king Alu Maana, hence Malians call this region the Haayre of Alu Maana. The word haayre rock, mountain is from Fulfulde, the language of the FulBe majority in this region and it refers to the rocky mountains that dominate the landscape.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The text in this volume covers a large period. It runs from the intensification of Islamic teaching during the reign of Alu Maana, to the struggles and intrigues at the court when Seeku Aamadu reigned over the neighbouring Islamic emirate of Maasina, to the French colonial regime. During the latter episode, a lot of attention is given to the manipulation of the appointment of rulers and the subsequent decline of their power under Modibo Keita and Moussa Traore in independent Mali. This interference of the French has resulted in doubts about the legitimacy of the kings, which is symbolized by the royal drums that are no longer played upon. The political developments involving the foundation of two parties by the Malian state, further diminished the role of the leaders of the Haayre as mediators for their people. This development is embodied in the final sentence of the text when Aamadu Baa Digi desperately concludes that "Jamaa oo, haya joonin, kaanankoo'be mon 'be, laamu walaa," which was translated as "Peuple, maintenant, vos rois, ils n'ont plus de pouvoir." A team of researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds (forestry, anthropology, linguistics, religious studies) has provided commentary on the social, cultural, geographic, ecological, political, linguistic and religious context of this text. An account is also given on the production and the producer of this text recited so vividly by Aamadu Baa Digi.
