This paper presents a study in the bibliographic report format and the elaboration of two videos about the Caretada. Dance of African origin, is a tradition passed from generation to generation in the quilombola communities in Paracatu. The argument will start from research done in books and dissertations that explain and show us why the Caretada is decreasing its performances around the city also the number of participants in the dance each year. The relevance of this study lies in seeking alternatives for the dissemination and diffusion of the Caretada. Therefore, we think of actions that can contribute to this goal. One of the possibilities was the elaboration of informative and educational videos, directed to teachers and students who, when approaching themes related to culture, memory, tradition, quilombolas, religious dances, etc. within the discipline of History or others, may make good use of this material. The videos intend to subsidize the teaching material of the teachers with the elementary school students II, that when using the videos to treat transversal subjects, their result becomes more efficient, because they will contribute to a bigger fixation of the learning. Thus, it is expected that even living in a digital age, and knowing that the implementation of the material at school will be a slow process, we will be able to make children and young people who represent the future of the country understand the relevant mission of knowing and spreading the word. Caretada culture in our municipality.
