This chapter examines the role of migration in resisting colonial forced-labor policies in the Machaze district in Mozambique. It describes how migration developed as a form of resistance to colonial policy and highlights the importance of migrancy as a strategy for dealing with the deadly famines that chronically swept through the district. This chapter suggests that both migration and resistance significantly influenced how the population of Machaze understood and reacted to armed conflict when it eventually arrived in the district.

Keywords:   migration, forced-labor policies, Machaze district, Mozambique, colonial policy, migrancy, resistance, armed conflict
