The term transhumant cattle-breeding denotes a form of traditional living and economy occurring between several locations which, by its antiquity, by far surpasses the ideas of nation and transnationalism. By following the case of the family Maniani, sheepherders from Šar-planina who have moved to the desolated mountain of Učka, the article analyzes the way in which this ancient form of life has now been interpreted as having a transnational component. Data for this article have been collected on both the above mentioned localities, through extensive interviews with members of the family and their employees. The article is trying to answer the question on why has one village on Šar-planina become the starting point of migration to the Učka Mountain as well as the questions of the character and the motifs for the transnational existence of Maniani’s.
