The Diccionario Lukumí-Español is a major editorial
work on the lukumí language that has emerged in the Yoruba community of Cuba.
This dictionary presents itself as a practical answer to the problem of
knowledge’s transmission on an island where communism and clandestinity still
reign supreme. Through the complex and protean iconography of
the Santería, I was able to address the issues related to the notion of
auctoriality in contents' creation. This work allowed me to familiarize myself with
the fieldwork, its possibilities and its limits.
