This spelling is a variant of the more standard spelling of hegira in English. It comes from the Arabic word hijira.

How very interesting!!! I love seeing that even natives learn a lot here ....every day something new!!

I found it:

hégira.

(Del fr. hégire, y este del ár. clás. hi'rah).

  1. f. Era de los musulmanes, que se cuenta desde el año 622, en que huyó Mahoma de la Meca a Medina, y que se compone de años lunares de 354 días, intercalando 11 de 355 en cada período de 30.

Muslem era, counting from the year 622.

Hi Heidita "Hejira" is the title of an album by Canadian artist Joni Mitchell. I also found the word in an english novel, perhaps referring to abandonment or desertion
