“My salt in your belly”. Agreement, binding and identity by meat consumption in South Western Morocco

In South western Morocco (Saharian region of Merzouga, Tafilalt) collective meat consumption materialize group identity, (village community in this case) which is periodically actualized. Thus the saying “my salt in your belly” allows us to analyze some meals with meat which take place in an aleatory occurrence frame: from the exceptional consumption of a wounded animal (dromedary) to agreement between individuals or groups (collective works and inauguration) and together with meals where hospitality rules transgression (buying instead of gift and consumption of illicit stolen meat) lead to creation of specific matrimonial prohibition between groups (fractions).
