INIGO CARRERA, Valeria. Configurations of the citizenship relationship among the Toba of Formosa: the universal and the particular. Andes [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1668-8090.
This article proposes a reflection upon the political forms in which capital accumulation organizes itself in a direct way among the Toba people of eastern Formosa. In order to do so, it starts from pointing out that the citizenship relation constitutes the full expression of the political individual in the capitalist organization of social production. Next, it advances over the tension between the general condition, that of being a citizen of the Argentine state, and the specific condition of being indigenous people. Likewise, the article deals with the shape that assumes the exercise of that relation as regards the premise of universality it encloses, based on the recognition of special rights granted to indigenous people. In short, it deals with the building of a particular type of citizenship for indigenous individuals. Lastly, it approaches the production of the Toba people as "political clients".
