FERNANDES, Estevão Rafael. Do Tsihuri ao Waradzu: o que as ideologias xavante de concepção, substância e formação da pessoa nos dizem sobre o estatuto ontológico do outro?. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.34, pp.453-477. ISSN 0104-7183.

This work reflects about the notions of conception, substance and personhood among the the Shavante Indians (and between the Gê Indians, in general) and its perception of the Other. What I try to demonstrate is that such notions, although it seems to, are not static, but extremely dynamic - being that such dynamism reflects an ideology of inclusive perception of this "Other", beyond bodiness, but also in its mythology, history and in the contact with the whites.

Keywords : bodiness; Gê speaking Indians; personhood; Shavante.
