In this chapter I examine articles published in Colombia's two national daily newspapers on the country's Amazonian indigenous communities. I explore the ways the journalists and photographers working for El Espectador and El Tiempo construct the differences between indigenous Amazonians and the country's nonindigenous citizens, and between Amazonian indigenous communities (referred to here as pueblos, "people," "town") and pueblos located in other regions. The articles were collected as part of a larger, ongoing research project investigating these two newspapers' representations of indigenous Colombia during the period 1988<EN>2006.
