Maintenir la réciprocité pour mieux coexister ?Ethnographie du récit kirghiz des relations dynamiques entre les hommes et les loups

Abstract : Considering the difficulties of disciplinary approaches to grasp the interactive properties of human-wolf relationships, I questionned the Kyrgyz on their relationships in synchrony and diachrony. I adopted an ethno-ethological approach which integrate the animal's behaviour and the way it is perceived in order to determine their influences on knowledge and practices.
Intelligent, endowed with intentionality and reflectivity, the wolf is credited by Kyrgyz with the same interiority as human one and thus appears as an alter ego. Kyrgyz's practices bears out their conception of the world and also takes part in its emergence. Thus, it appears that the Kyrgyz are engaged with wolves in an inter-relation founded on reciprocal interactions. The fall of USSR and its consequences on human practices and thus on wolves behaviour allows us to bring to light the dynamic property of Kyrgyz-wolves relationship and drives us to consider it as a co-evolution.
