This article analyzes the socio-cultural constraints in the host areas which are sources of the inequality of access to land in connection with the strategies for reducing said inequality. The article is based on research being carried out in the department of Korhogo, in the north of Côte d’Ivoire. These burdens are revealing socio-cultural barriers experienced by migrant Fulani ethnic group in their Burkinabe’s relationship with their Senufo tutors. It shows that despite an apparent social cohesion between Burkinabe Peulh herders and Senufo farmers, inequalities persist in access to land capital. This makes it possible to identify the poverty of living conditions and existence among Burkinabe migrants in certain rural localities in the north. Through a qualitative approach glazed maintenance s individual and focus group with community leaders and local populations, structured around a sample of 50 people, the study finds that the religious institution embodied by the Poro, capital of autochthony and the inheritance system in the Senufo culture, underpins the production of inequalities between Fulani herders and native farmers in access to land. Consequently, mentoring and the transfer of skills and knowledge are mobilized by migrants as strategies to reduce these inequalities and improve income.
