Throughout the restorations of the Vó Nair, 94 years old, ethno-biografical narrative, folk-healer, who lives at Novo Hamburgo (RS) the article points out the insertion strategies that were used by some black families in the outskirts of the Sinos Valley. Inspired by the proceedings of an duration ethnography coupled with the sound and visual ethnographic technique, we look for the understanding of the local urban culture dynamics and the ways of employment of the black labour and the ethnic-racial relations that are presented within the rhythmic of the labor world in the Sinos Valley, and situating this work in a field of live testimony of one of the main characters.
