L'immigration réunionnaise : un peuplement continu, contraint et volontaire

Abstract : This paper purports to analyze the migratory trends of indenture in a general survey spanning nearly one century (1846-1938). This study on immigration i of particular importance regarding Reunion Island as all the existing ethnic groups there stem from a process of forced immigration submitted to either individual deals or state control. Because of their multiple origins, these groups raise the problems related to cultural confrontations and the building of a "melting-pot" (in social, cultural, religious terms) in the island and in relation to the French model. This paper deals with several items which highlight the building of a mixed society within a historical and sociological context undergoing constant change due to the creolization of people and their cultural roots.
