Pages: 33 - 45
Auteur(s) / Author(s): Mark Nuttall
Résumé:

En se basant sur ses recherches de terrain, l'auteur montre que les rituels, ou rites de passage, qui marquent la transition de jeune garçon à chasseur signalent le début d'un long apprentissage pratique, et établissent et renforcent des types spécifiques de relations sociales avec les personnes, les animaux et la localité.

Abstract:

On the basis of the author's fieldwork, this paper argues that the rituals, or rites of passage, that mark the transition of a boy or young man to that of hunter signal the beginning of a rather lengthy apprenticeship, or learning in practice, and establish and reinforce specific kinds of social relationships, with persons, animals and the locality.
