Abstract

This account presents the voice of a Serbian Gypsy who still remembers his heritage and traditions. The Gypsy oral history presented here demonstrates that Gypsy behaviour can be better understood by bringing together the narration of local people with the objective data produced by anthropology: this story tells as much about the Gypsy present in Serbia as about their past, and Gypsy traditional behaviour, usually taken as the result of poverty, is better understood.
