The article is the product of an ethnographic analysis developed on the border of Frontera Sur, which separates Africa from Europe. The ethnography was carried out on both sides of the border, in Morocco and in Ceuta (Spain), and concerned the participants’ observation of the lives of a group of Sub-Saharan migrants, their survival, actions and confinement. Through an ethnographic methodology, life and travel stories have been collected. The migrant speeches and practices, developed for thinking and acting in the violent spaces on the border, were analysed: crossing the border wall, overcoming control devices, and other life practices. Speeches and the shared narration of migratory adventure have brought out the social and political presence of the migrants. This presence is expressed by the migrants shouting Boza: emic category that allows them to signify the dynamic and dense action aimed at successful migration.
Keywords: migrants; Boza; migratory strategies; border; Morocco; Ceuta.
