Abstrakt

In Candomblé, existence and the continuation of life are dependent on a complex dynamic of interactions involving all more-than-human beings (humans, objects, artifacts, the environment, animals, plants, minerals, the ancestors, spiritual beings, forces). The myth of the creation of the universe from a common divine origin; the concept of àṣẹ, the life force that constitutes life in its manifestations, and its possibility to flow inside and outside the bodies establishing interconnectivity, interdependence, and mutual in-becomings of all more-than-human beings; the centrality of Èṣù, òrìṣà of crossroads and encounters, which ensures movement, communication, and the dynamic balance of forces in the cosmos and society, as well as the principle of individualization, they all sustain a mode of existence, of inhabiting the world, developing along life lines and living in conviviality with the other more-than-human beings.
Based on ethnographic research carried out at the Candomblé terreiro Àṣe Idasilẹ Ọdẹ of Bàbá Marcelo Monteiro Ifamakanjuọla Alabi Adedosu and other terreiros in the metropolitan area of Rio de Janeiro, I explore forms of conceiving and living with other more-than-human beings, the ethics which sustain these relationships, the forms of resistance and re-existence in a changing environment, and the claims for maintaining their vital relationship with nature, food, and the land.
