abstract

The essay intends to examine the most recent reportage written by travel writer Elena Dak, published by Corbaccio in 2016, dedicated to Peulh Wodaabe nomads, better known as Bororo. The experience of nomadism, firmly rejecting a ‘touristic’ idea of visit, is experienced and narrated by a woman’s voice as an exception that can facilitate the contact with the customs and traditions of a migrant culture, featured by ritual traditions, social practices and dances of extraordinary significance.
