Knowing the etymological origin of the term that we are now going to analyze is the first thing we have to do. In this case, we can say that it is the result of the sum of two clearly delimited components:
-The verb raigar, which derives from the Latin verb “radicare”, which can be translated as “take root”.
-The suffix “-ambre”, which is Castilian and is used to record that it is talking about groups.
Tradition is the name given to the estate of plants when they are crisscrossed and linked. For instance: “These bushes withstood the storm as their roots are very strong”, “I asked the gardener to remove the soil and remove all the roots”, “You cannot grow the plant in this pot since its roots will not have room to develop”.
The concept of roots can also be used to name the background, the traditions waves bases that link something or someone to a place or that give it firmness to something: “The mambo has a very important roots in this land”, “He is not a nationally famous artist, but he has roots in the northern region of the country”, “A society with a progressive roots cannot support such a measure”.
Many are the people who leave to live outside their villages to start a new path in the cities. However, that does not prevent them from maintaining a faithful root to the lands in which they were born and raised. This means that not only do they need to return periodically but also that they are informed of everything that happens in them, through tools such as, for example, web pages.
But it should also be noted that those who have a stronger roots in this regard do not hesitate to enjoy, promote and always maintain in their lives everything that has to do with their peoples. Hence, they make the typical recipes of their gastronomy at home, listen to the music made by local folk groups, maintain traditions and even enjoy reading the books and works made by authors from those towns.
Suppose an anthropologist studies the development of a certain ritual in a country. The specialist, in this way, discovers that the rite in question is not widespread throughout the national area, although it has roots in the towns of the southern area. This means that, in this region, the ritual is entrenched by a historical or cultural issue.
In addition, it must be taken into account that there have been and are numerous artistic shows entitled “Raigambre”, one of them being the one created by the Aragonese Folk Company “Estampa Baturra” with which it was intended to demonstrate the way of living and thinking of the peoples Aragonese in specific historical stages.
The expression “Constitutional roots”, on the other hand, it is used with reference to rights that are collected by the Constitution from a country. In expressing this, a judge indicates that the right to which he alludes is enshrined by the fundamental norms from which the rest of the laws of a nation emanate.
There are scholars who reject the idea of “Constitutional roots” considering that many laws have “estate” precedents to any Constitution: in fact, the Constitution it collects norms that already had historical and social support.
