Abstract
The article examines the role and existence of sharing meal ritual. At least, so to speak, there are two functions of the ritual, i.e. on the one hand, as a cultural strategy to maintain social cohesion. On the other hand, it reflects differences within the community which potential for conflict. Differences and commonalities might be regarded as a dynamic and complex process within a community. The sharing meal ritual contains varying materials and ideals of societal life, which can be seen collectively both through actual and symbolic meanings. The meanings emerge from social ideas and undergoing through their daily societal life, which influence and have been influenced by their view in order to manage a common living space. These complexities of meal tradition need to be explored to be understood.
