Food, Sex, and Pollution: A New Guinea Religion.

Likewise, the warmth of our relationships was not at all harmed when some Asabano refused to eat my rice pudding, although on both sides we noticed the differences that these preferences displayed. My Asabano associates often called attention to the act of eating together, regardless of what was eaten, as an indicator of our closeness and equality. The fact that I sat and ate with local people was repeatedly held up as showing that in spite of my being a foreigner and a white man, I was unlike some whites they had met who refused to treat Papua New Guineans as fellow human beings by eating with them.

Many examples of this pattern can be found in the ethnographic record. Elsewhere in Papua New Guinea, among the Vanatinai islanders, sharing food at feasts soothes sorcery suspicions following a death, and even more strikingly, a man and a woman declare their marriage by publicly eating together (Lepowsky 1993:245). By the same token, the closeness of friendship or the distance of dislike are expressed by the relative ease of food sharing in societies based on reciprocity, as the African San woman Nisa evocatively described to her biographer, Marjorie Shostak (1983 [1981]:88–89).
