Current Clip:

Jean-Pierre Warnier contextualizes his exchanges with the Mankon Kingdom and explains that this relationship of reciprocity is based on a system of giving and counter-giving. As an example, he explains the difference between his thesis work on Mankon royalty, which sought to reconstitute a long-term genealogy, and this thesis, which attempts to reconstruct a partial genealogy based on chronology that uses the royal sepulcher and royal lineages. In doing so, he highlights the paradox between the work in an outdated thesis and hardly publishable as is, and the royalty’s desire to be able to read the “tale of the palace.” In order to play a part in this relationship of reciprocity, he explains that his thesis was published as a collection of raw data and that he regularly gives documents and publications to the Mankon Museum and the Cameroonian archives. He goes on to highlight the current phenomenon of modernization occurring in these kingdoms and cites the photo taken of King Mankon and Cameroon’s President Paul Biya.
