The Graves of Tarim

This chapter describes the social geography port town of Aden, the point in space and time at which the Hadrami diaspora ventured out into the Indian Ocean. It looks at how a certain kind of place is created by the movement of a diaspora through it and suggests that Hadramawt is not only a homeland for the Adeni but also a destination of earlier migrations. It outlines the historical origins of the sayyids in Hadramawt, and the early roots and routes of the Alawī Way there through a narrative of geography.

Keywords:   Aden, social geography, Hadrami diaspora, Hadramaw, Adeni, sayyids, Alawī Way
