Traces de l’engagisme de 1933 à La Réunion et à Rodrigues

Abstract : Following the negotiations led between the Reunion colonists and the British authorities, several hundreds of Rodriguese were recruited in 1933 to work in sugar plantations and sugar-producing factories in Reunion colony. The major part of these indentured people, once confronted with the realities of life in Reunion became disappointed. From the beginning of 1934 till the end of 1935, they claimed to be sent back to Rodrigues. Not many of them stayed in Reunion Island. The authors of this article collected, on the Réunion and Rodrigues terrains, fragments of life and family recollections, brief anecdotes, sections of oral tradition from survivors or descendants of these indentured labourers. They propose here a historical reading of the failure of this Rodriguese immigration and an ethnography of its track on the Reunionese and Rodriguese « fieldworks ».
