Eléments pour une étude des représentations de la canne à sucre chez les Ankave-Anga (PNG)

Abstract : In the set of representations the Ankave have elaborated concerning food and nurturing, sugar cane seems unambiguously associated with maternal milk. Yet, the ways sugar cane is consumed during male initiations point to a more complex situation, which the author analyzes in this particular ethnographic context as well as with respect to what is known of the connections other Angans make between bodily substances and several foods.
