Resumé

Following Jean Rouch's travel on the Niger river and his first writings on the Sorkawa fishermen of Kebbi, the article documents the trajectory of a group of nomadic fishermen engaged in seasonal campaigns on the Niger river between Nigeria and Mali. The author retraces the evolution of fishermen's mobility over the last 60 years and reveals the reasons why their mobility has been increasingly hindered since the 1980s. In addition to the drastic vanishing of fish stocks related to droughts as well as human causes, the author stresses the responsibility of state institutions and the role of corruption in the process of sedentarisation of these fishermen. Sedentarisation goes hand in hand with impoverishment. Such trajectory is documented by a documentary movie, river Nomads (2016), starting point of a research at the crossroads of circular migrations and an anthropology of citizenship. This research agenda is both a tool for an engaged visual anthropology and a medium to implement Rouch's spirit of 'shared anthropology'.
