Can the use of the camera as a recording technique, a research and exploration tool be a worthful instance to encourage an intergenerational and intraethnic dialogue to re think on dominant narratives on practices which generate shame and disrepute? These concerns, among others, moved the creation of the participative video workshop: "Na na lavill'llaGa'c qataq nalquii qarhuo ', the voice and image of our people", in Nam Qom, Lote 68, Formosa Province, during the months of February and April of 2007, driven together by anthropologists and indigenous toba young teachers. In this paper we aim to explore the workshop experience putting into perspective the scope of the construction of participative video as a tool for documentation, research and dissemination of pre-evangelical artistic and cultural expressions of toba people.
