|Abstract: ||Res:Most of Moroccan tribes were characterized by traveling in search of pastures
to cater for the needs of cattle pasture. So, by their repetitive movements,
it was caused some conflicts among themselves. It was only the results of
practising the farming under the pressures of authorities. Thus, they began
to know the kind of stability in the regions that they resorted to them. Despite
this shift on the level of production systems, the conflict continues to fester
over the resources, which were offered by the space and mainly represented
in pastures and water, and the other as in the case with the tribes of Ait Atta
and Zemmour. Consequently, they were prompted to put a Charter called
the Tadda or Tatta in order to avoid disputes and conflicts and peacefully
take advantage from economic resources, which are provided, by the space.
Besides, the Tatta played an important role in stabilizing the peace and
solidarity between tribes or between a family group tribe (subfraction) with
another family group tribe. And, its implications extend to this present time.
Furthermore, the Al-amazigh tribes retained those values that have become
to reflect its identity as well as its heritage value which have made them
cohesive despite the transformations that took place since the beginning of
the 20th century.
Due to this important subject, we will try to treat the importance of the
Tada convention of Al-amazigh tribes and its impact on agricultural activity
especially the grazing, in the tribes of south-east (Ait Atta) and the tribes of
the central plateau (Zemmour) so as to view more on its position as well as
its various geographical spaces. In this context, some questions arise in this
principal issue, which we will try to answer later:
- What is meant by the Tada convention?
- What are the reasons for putting this convention?
- What is its impact on agricultural activity especially grazing; on the relationships as well as the social ties with the unit spatial of tribes?
Keywords: Al-amazigh, Tada convention, family groups (Subfractions), the
tribes of Zemmour, the tribes of Ait Atta.|
