Somalis Abroad

University of Illinois Press

This chapter summarizes the key points of the book and elucidates how the case study of Somalis in Finland furthers our understanding of kinship, identity, and diaspora. The chapter considers how and why telling clan will likely change with the return of Somalis to ancestral clan territories, south to north migration, linguistic changes, shifting political engagements, and identity constructions. The chapter also highlights the selected resettlement of Somali Bantu refugees in the United States by contrasting the author’s more recent work among this group in a large metropolitan area in the United States with Somalis in Finland.

Keywords:   kinship, identity, diaspora, telling, Somali Bantu
