Abstract

Abstract:

For forced migrants, building a sense of home in their new context is a vital search. In this article, I argue that in the case of displaced indigenous artisans, "home" is constantly longed for and reconstructed through materiality—through their interactions with the environment, materials, and the re-adaptation of craftsmanship. This article draws from research among the Wounaan (a displaced indigenous group from Colombia) and their folklore related to traditional basket making.
