Abstract

French: L'auteur aborde la culture d'une tribu aborigène du Nord-Ouest de l'Australie, les Kukatja, en particulier leurs rituels entourant la mort. Il commence par une analyse phénoménologique et anthropologique de ces rituels. De cette analyse, il tire ensuite un certain nombre de conclusions en vue du processus d'inculturation de l'Évangile dans ce domaine de la vie aborigène, même si plusieurs de ces dernières restent encore provisoires et demandent d'être étudiées plus en profondeur.

English: This article begins by outlining the mourning rites of the Kukatja people of the Eastern Kimberley of Australia, as currently practised. It then reflects theologically on these rituals before focusing more explicitly on issues of inculturation in relation to the rites.
