Abstract Migration is a phenomenon stemming from wealth inequalities within inhabited areas. It goes hand in hand with human life. This phenomenon has witnessed such a growth that the notion of autochthony is increasingly blurred in big cities, especially in African cities. If in Côte d' Ivoire, we still identify Adzopé, Bonoua, and Ferké etc. respectively as Attie, Aboure and Senufo’s cities, this is not the case of Abidjan, where the Aboriginal concept seems to escape Ebrié people who tend to merge with migrants. The migration flow is so important that its population has increased from 300,000 in 1950 to more than 2,877,948 inhabitants with only 98,285 inhabitants for Ebrié Aboriginal people (NIS, 1998). Representing 3.41% of the total population of Abidjan, this people has become a minority people in a modern world where competition is the rule. The disproportionate extension of the metropolis has a real impact on this people which now seem disarmed.
