It is the main outcome of several ethnographic researches carried out by a group of anthropologists whose ethnographic data allow a more systematic approach to different folk procreation conceptions. In this light, a new specific technique of ethnographic research analysis is presented: the procreative chronographie. Such technique has made possible to analyse in great processual detail all that configures a procreative structure, with its deep meanings and correlations with many other social and cultural aspects that structure every different society.
