This article provides a dual insight into the Indian minority in Madagascar, looking into the development of its economic activities and its feelings of community identity, in relation to France and the Grande Île itself. In attempting to protect their cultural heritage, the Gujarati communities have preserved a social system that has made them increasingly unpopular as their economic power has grown. It is through what could be seen as a paradox that the Indian issue in Madagascar can be understood, for apparent continuities must not hide shifting allegiances. L'article présente la minorité indienne de Madagascar sous un double regard, relatif au développement de ses activités économiques et à ses sentiments identitaires communautaires, à l'égard de la France et de la Grande Île. En tentant de protéger leur héritage culturel, les communautés gujaraties préservent un système social qui a pu les rendre d'autant plus impopulaires que leur pouvoir économique s'agrandissait. C'est autour de ce qui peut apparaître comme un paradoxe que la question indienne à Madagascar peut être appréhendée, d'apparentes permanences ne devant pas occulter la fluidité des allégeances. O artigo apresenta a minoria indiana de Madagáscar sob um duplo olhar, relativo ao desenvolvimento das suas actividades económicas e aos seus sentimentos identitários, relativamente à França e à « Grande Île ». Ao tentarem proteger a sua herança cultural, as comunidades gujarati preservam um sistema social que pôde torná-las tanto mais impopulares que o seu poder económico aumentava. É à volta do que pode aparecer como um paradoxo que a questão indiana pode ser apreeendida, com permanências aparentes que não devem ocultar a fluidez dos laços de fidelidade.
