This work explores some critical exercises that place the Amazon Indian within the occidental symbolic coordinates and the meaning transformations, which are imposed to him when he is moved into knowledge circuits distant from the cultural environment he comes from. Meanwhile, it reconstructs and examines in a critical way the relation established by the critics of Colombian literature with this symbolic system. In this analysis’ perspective, anthropologic, historical, and literary points of reference are continuously intertwined; however, the most important one is the in-depth and detailed research made by Robin Wright (1981) on Brazilian Baniwa groups.
