Keywords: peoples of the center | FARC | productive activities | interchanges | cultural difference.

This article tries to capture the relationship between the economic activities of the indigenous peoples in the central zone of the Caquetá River (Uitotos, Muinanes, Andokes, Nonuyas) and the means of production of the FARC guerilla. These relations took place in times of the geopolitical juncture stemming from the breakup of the peace dialogues between the Pastrana government and the FARC in 2002. Using descriptive means, the article discovers the political importance for local indigenous life that was created by “working” in midst of the guerilla presence and the following attack by the Colombian army. Finally, the article points out that the economic encounters between insurgency and local residents were mediated not only by the distinct ways of conducting social life, but also by a series of interests, desires and different subjectivities that, in the framework of the armed conflict, reaffirm the condition of local residents as culturally differentiated subjects.
