L’enregistrement biométrique des « autres » : Indigénéité négociée, citoyenneté et lutte pour les papiers de la communauté maragoli en Ouganda

Abstract : In Uganda, 15,000 people defined as Maragoli have been unable to acquire national identity cards through the citizen registration process implemented in 2014. For the most part from Kenya, the Maragoli are not listed among the so-called “indigenous” groups recognized in the 1995 constitution. This article addresses the process of negotiating indigenousness as the basis of nationality. We will see that Maragoli claims to citizenship come with the production of a constantly evolving origin narratives and efforts to (re)validate their indigenousness through bureaucratic self-(re)writing, which can lead to multiple and sometimes contradictory accounts.
