TOGO, J. et al. The woman atamisqueñas: the weaver. Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2000, n.13, pp.187-193. ISSN 1668-8104.

The present work consists of the ''corpus'' of knowledge achieved through the research: ''The study of historical processes within living memory from Villa Atamisqui'' 1993-1996, directed by Licenciate José Togo, who belongs to the council of Technical and Scientific Research (CICYT) from National University of Santiago del Estero (UNSE). A study performed from a qualitative perspective, resorting to the technique of ''Oral Story'' with in-depth and semistructural interviews, these data are analysed in three dimensions: 1.the construction (interpretation) of its identity, 2.its relationship with the local community and, 3. its relationship with the economic system. The learning of the weaver´s activity is characterized as part of the social process that implies meetings among mothers, daughters and relatives in order to spin, dye and weave and where there is a transmission of knowledge related to the techniques and procedures so as to attain a stated kind of weft and pattern in the blankets which gives each of them a particular and unique feature. If the migratory trend of the weavers´ daughters keeps on, it may stop the ''transmission'' of knowledge as well as the craft. In the same way the impossibility of setting the production on the market would persuade them to look for new methods of alternative incomes and thus lacking cultural, social and economic encouragement this craft would be exctint in the short run.
