Statut et rôle symbolique des animaux domestiques chez des chasseurs-cueilleurs-cultivateurs : le cas des Gbaya de République Centrafricaine

Abstract : The Gbaya, a society of hunter-gatherer-farmers have only three types of domestic animals: dogs, goats and hens. Each dog which is given a name of its own is the hunter's assistant; goats make up a large part of bride price and the hen plays an ritual role essential to marriages. An analysis of the behavior of these animals in the folkrore makes it possible to better discern their symbolic values.
