In this paper we intend to show that the relationship of a people with their environment is fundamental in shaping their concept of ownership / possession. Communities that have a more direct relationship with their natural environment tend to have a more fluid sense of ownership, in which the idea of “collective ownership” is more common than that of “individual ownership”. In cultures whose relationship with the environment is more mediated by culture the opposite occurs, and “mine” is more prevalent than “ours”. For the purposes of this study we will analyze some linguistic terms used to label the idea of possession of plants, animals and land in two distinct cultures, one that maintains a direct relationship with their environment, Indians Xerente Akwen, another representing our entire Western culture. In this case we will analyze some terms of the Bible, under the assumption that our Western culture has two major cultural bases, the Judeo-Christian and Greek culture. The former is here represented by the Bible.
