   Abstract = {Prior to the Spanish conquest, the Nahua indigenous peoples
             of central Mexico did not have a notion of "sex" or
             "sexuality" equivalent to the sexual categories developed by
             colonial society or those promoted by modern Western
             peoples. In this innovative ethnohistory, Pete Sigal seeks
             to shed new light on Nahua concepts of the sexual without
             relying on the modern Western concept of sexuality. Along
             with clerical documents and other Spanish sources, he
             interprets the many texts produced by the Nahua. While
             colonial clerics worked to impose Catholic
             beliefs-particularly those equating sexuality and sin-on the
             indigenous people they encountered, the process of cultural
             assimilation was slower and less consistent than scholars
             have assumed. Sigal argues that modern researchers of
             sexuality have exaggerated the power of the Catholic
             sacrament of confession to change the ways that individuals
             understood themselves and their behaviors. At least until
             the mid-seventeenth century, when increased contact with the
             Spanish began to significantly change Nahua culture and
             society, indigenous peoples, particularly commoners, related
             their sexual lives and imaginations not just to concepts of
             sin and redemption but also to pleasure, seduction, and
             rituals of fertility and warfare. © 2011 Duke University

@article{fds295684,
   Author = {Sigal, P},
   Title = {Imagining Cihuacoatl: Mexica Masculinity and Spanish
             Colonization},
   Journal = {Gender & History},
   Volume = {22},
   Number = {3},
   Pages = {538-563},
   Year = {2010},
   Month = {November},
   url = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1468-0424.2010.01610.x},
   Abstract = {'Imagining Cihuacoatl' examines the conundrum of the
             multiple identities of the 'serpent woman', a Mexica
             goddess, analysing her relationship with other goddesses in
             the Nahua pantheon. She and the others were marked in a
             particular sexualised and gendered manner in the Nahua
             world. This article argues that Cihuacoatl and the fertility
             goddesses cannot be conceptualised in a symbolic universe
             that has binary divisions between male and female, nor can
             they be analysed by the methods currently employed in the
             social and cultural history of sexuality. This article
             follows images of various goddesses of warfare and fertility
             from pre-conquest and early post-conquest texts, suggesting
             ways in which the Spanish attempted to reconceptualise all
             of them into a framework of demonic sin. 'Imagining
             Cihuacoatl' will interrogate the sexual performance involved
             in Nahua ritual, lost in the translation not just from
             Nahuatl to Spanish but from a system that linked sex with
             rites of fertility to one that linked sex with sin.
             'Imagining Cihuacoatl' shows that Gayle Rubin's call to
             develop a theory of sexuality separate from gender is a
             project fraught with contradictions, and one that remains
             incomplete. © 2010 Blackwell Publishing
