Auguste Pavie, l’explorateur aux pieds nus (1847-1925)

Aix-en-Provence - Historique - Thursday 1st of July 2021 at 6.30 pm. - Free

Auguste Pavie est aujourd’hui une figure oubliée de l’expansion coloniale française. Son épopée indochinoise nous fait voyager au Cambodge, au Siam, sur le Mékong, à travers tout le Laos, côtoyer des rois, des pirates, des populations montagnardes jusque-là inconnues. Quand il regagne la métropole en 1895, grâce à lui les territoires laotiens font partie de l’Indochine française. A la fois botaniste, géographe, topographe, ethnologue, photographe, libre penseur et franc-maçon c’est un homme de la IIIe République.
