This talk aims to show how the study of the human condition is carried out through a reading of natural entities. It is illustrated through the indexical analysis of the Uitoto (an indigenous group from the Northwestern Amazon) discourse on vegetable salts. The species used to extract ash salt are conceived of as coming from the body of the Creator and as an image of the human body. This discourse performs, in words and gestures, a narrative of human affects and capacities by reading ecological, biological, cultural and linguistic indices from a set of plant species. This discourse on plant species is a discourse on the control and management of bodily affects and capacities represented as ash salts, that are lessons about sexual development, which the Creator left for humanity as a guide—a ‘sexual education’.
