This paper aims to analyze the use of technology in indigenous environments as an instrument to preserve their culture and language. We also aimed here to display results of a first version of a cataloguing system we have been developing to store words from the Xacriabá language. We think that the availability linguistic data in any digital format may induce or support the cultural revival of indigenous peoples.
