This article describes the processes and results of the animation and video workshops we held at Centro Rural de Educación Superior, en Estipac, Jalisco, Mexico. The workshops were directed to high school and college students, many of whom were Huicholes. We gave them technical equipment, training, and the necessary support to allow them to tell their own stories in their language, through frame-by-frame animation. During the process, they learned not only to value, preserve, and transmit their cultural traditions in a new way, but also to practice being more critical consumers of mass media in today's society. The idea that guided these workshops is that animation can open the door to the world of the visual media, based on interest in media skills and social justice.
