About this title:

Synopsis: The Nagô Hunters of the Bantè Kingdom, established in the fourteenth century, form a brotherhood of hunters, placed under the authority of a traditional King. The Kingdom is located in the heart of Benin, in the Bantè forest, the Collines Department. The 27 villages of the Kingdom comprise Chiefs Hunters. At the expense of hunting great game, now abandoned, the Hunters have become the essential players in the conservation of their environment, through defending the Bantè Forest on one hand and through protecting their cultural heritage on the other. Guardians of a rich tradition intimately linked with the forest, the Nagô Hunters notably conserve an exceptional knowledge of treatments based on the use of medicinal plants.

Book Description ZINSOU, 2012. Paperback. Condition: NEUF. Les chasseurs Nagô du Royaume de Bantè, fondé au XIVe siècle, forment une confrérie placée sous l'autorité d'un roi traditionnel.Le Royaume est situé au coeur du Bénin dans la Forêt de Bantè, région des collines. Chacun des vingt-sept villages composant le Royaume possède des chefs chasseurs. Aux dépens de la chasse au grand gibier, aujourd'hui abandonnée, les chasseurs se sont mués en acteurs essentiels de la préservation de leur environnement : par la défense de la Forêt d'une part, par la protection de leur culture d'autre part.Dépositaires d'une tradition intimement liée à leur environnement, ils détiennent notamment une connaissance exceptionnelle de traitements à base de plantes médicinales. Après vingt-cinq années de photographie dédiée à l'Asie, Jean- Dominique Burton parcourt l'Afrique depuis le début des années 2000. Il en dévoile la richesse des civilisations et la beauté du patrimoine. Dès le début, l'ensemble de ses projets africains est soutenu par la Fondation Zinsou, rejoint récemment par la Fondation George Arthur Forrest, et révèle un regard résolument positif sur l'Afrique. - Nombre de page(s) : 128 - Poids : 1200g - Genre : Ethnologie et Anthropologie.
