TOLA, Florencia C.. Constitución de la persona sexuada entre los toba, qom, del Chaco argentino. Rev. pueblos front. digit. [online]. 2007, vol.2, n.4, pp.429-452. ISSN 1870-4115.

This text approaches the concept of sexual person among Toba people, qom, of the Argentinean Chaco. It analyzes some of the vital components that constitute the person — humor, names, etc.— and the human and non human actions that take part in the formation of the sexual person. After revising the toba conceptions of gestation, the constitution of the ‘emotion-thoughts’ and the ritual of puberty, it approaches the way in which qom people visualize the importance of sexuality in the constitution of a person. Finally, the study of the activities and responsibilities of each gender will allow to show how the sexual person does not arise as thus just by consequence of gestation, but is created throughout the entire life.

Palabras llave : Notion of person; body; emotion; Gran Chaco.
