The experience as a mean of knowledge from a visual anthropology.

Abstract in spanish

A reflection concerning the possible links between visual anthropology and indigenous world is made in this article, taking into account the existence of a historical and permanent relation between these two worlds. From an intimate language, these papers seek to share the fieldwork experience of an anthropologist with the readers allowing them to see her permanent questions and convictions around what collaborative work implies. This work grants the possibility to detach from the colonial ties that affect all the spheres of knowledge by establishing unequal power positions around the importance of knowledge.

Keywords: Indigenous video,identity,representation,colonialism,collaborative experience.
