Probably, but it was a direct borrowing from a common use for father in m= any Spanish speaking countries (I even guess from regions with no Quechua influence)

Actually the posesive beheaves as a verb (most pronouns like _vor_ or _le= y_, just add the verbal suffix, _doy_ "I/me" becomes _bo_ "my" with an irregu= lar theme). But yes, the genitive, if you can call it that way, uses the ver= bal paradigm without root. Then, my syster's door, would be (glossed due to laziness to check the lexicon) "door" "syster" bo e while "my syster, her door" would be "syster" bo eb=E1 "door" om=E1e
