L’art de tisser des liens chez les Māori de Nouvelle-Zélande Aotearoa : analyse des relations entre les Māori et leurs ancêtres par l'intermédiaire des manteaux māori (kākahu) en qualité de trésors ancestraux (taonga)

Abstract : This Ph.D. thesis analyzes the bounds that Māori people of Aotearoa New Zealand nurture and maintain with their ancestors through tangible and intangible ancestral treasures passed down from generation to generation (taonga). The focus of this research is set on two taonga that women generate and mobilize with the help of men and ancestors : the māori cloaks (kākahu) and the māori art of finger weaving (whatu) which allows its creation. In Aotearoa, following these two taonga led me to work with specialists who create, take care, display and pass them down because they have the responsibility to act as intermediaries between the living and their ancestors in a universe where weaving relationships with ancestors is essential. To translate and understand this ontology, I develop several conceptual approaches such as the nonlinear creative processes, the envelopment of people, the circulations of people and taonga, transgenerational continuity, sociocosmic space, and relational weaving.
