The paper deals with the problem of adolescent intercultural encounters. It discusses the results of a study conducted in digital storytelling workshops attended by urban and rural, indigenous and non-indigenous, students from two regions of Chile. It analyzes, with a dialogic and ethnographic approach, the processes and products created by the adolescents. Results reveal that adolescents take a position that challenges the adult world. In this intercultural encounter, the difference is not confirmed for some participants, whereas for others, who do identify differentiating traits, ethnic characteristics are not visible and remain absent from their digital creations.
