Abstract

A partir d'analyses célèbres, l'auteur évoque brièvement la symbolique et les représentations générales du sel comme condiment cru en Amérique; elle s'interroge alors sur leurs transformations dans la culture des Arawak subandins chez qui le sel est à cuire et introduit deux contes du sel et son mythe d'origine chez les Matsiguenga pour amorcer les recherches. A partir de análisis famosas, se evocan brevemente la simbólica y las representaciones de la sal como condimento crudo en América ¿Que son las transformaciones del sistema general cuando la sal tiene de ser cocida según la práctica del conjunto de los arawak subandinos? Dos cuentos y el mito de origen Matsiguenga introducen la problematica de la sal. Using well known analyses, the author briefly evoques the symbolism and the general representations of salt as a raw condiment in America. She inquires about the transformations involved when, as among the Arawak in the Subandean area, salt is not treated as raw but rather cooked. She analyses two matsiguenga stories and an origin myth in which salt is referred to in the latter context.
