ANGULO VILLAN, Florencia Raquel. The Ukumar: the monstruous in the Church discourse in the conquest. Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2005, n.27, pp.37-59. ISSN 1668-8104.

Many communities of Jujuy province still conserve an enormous oral tradition that has its origins in prehispanic ages. These oral discourses have undergone permanent versions from the conflicting intersection with the colonial cultural universe.    By Royal order, colonial priests and civil employees iniciated a manipulation of these texts that gave identity to the prehispanic subject and with which it was wranted to restore the new sociocultural paradigms in America. Being based on Aristoteles' doctrines, it was demonstrated the Indian rational incapacity and was affirmed the politic of the most perfect over the most imperfect dominion.    The missionaries were the ones incharge of the manipulation of the Indian communities imaginary. Trained in speech, they appropriated the Indians discourses. They drained them of the contents that gave sense them and had governed the prehispanic world. They were loaded of new senses, opposite and often contradictory to the narive Americans vision. Thes work tries to observe how in the Ukumar storis, the potentialities of the Church discourse from the monstrous image update like image of racial degeneration can be reactivated. To approach the reading of different versions on the Ukumar is an attempt of fragments reactivation of the Church discourse that is summoned in these texts across the monstrous and harnessed by the description of the satanic.
