Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author explores the many facets of disquieting Goans' history, a disquieting that is reinforced on an analytical level by a lack of historiography associated with this series of Goan migrations. The author offers an ethnographic history of Goans, looking at the longings and belongings of many different individuals living in postcolonial Maputo, recounting testimonies that give voice to different phases of migration. Lastly, the author alludes to the next generation of Goans living in Maputo, suggesting both their continuing sense of disquiet in the face of Mozambican postcoloniality and the ways in which they very much continue patterns of "local cosmopolitanisms" practiced by their ancestors, who experienced not only migration from one Portuguese colony to another but two different moments of decolonization-Goan, in 1961, and Mozambican in 1975.
