Le fleuve et ses gardiens. Droits bioculturels en action sur le fleuve Atrato

Abstract : In 2016, the Colombian Constitutional Court granted rights to the Atrato River. Based on an ethnographic study conducted with the people involved in this decision, this article focuses on the mobilization of the notion of biocultural rights, original in the Colombian case. It traces its trajectory and its introduction in this act of granting legal personhood to a river. It then describes the way in which biocultural rights are put into action locally. The investigation in the Chocó department brings out the ambiguities of this approach as well as its implications, especially in terms of responsibilities and duties for the guardians of the river in charge of following up the Court's decision.
