The Waorani People

The Waorani People are Hunters-and-Gatherers from the Amazonian Amazon Rainforest Ecuador (Napo, Orellana and Pastaza Provinces). They are famous for riding out using sharp-pointed palm spears to any tries over their territory including oil workers and missionaries. They have marked differences from other ethnic groups from Ecuador.

Below is a collection of videos clip made to capture some of the lifestyle of the Waorani People.

The entire Yasuni Biosphere Reserve region is ancestral Waorani People territory. Which extends, from the Napo River on the north and west, down to the Curaray River in the south and eastward into Peru.

This vast territory, which stretches over 20 000 km2, underlies the current limits of Yasuni National Park and the Waorani Ethnic Reserve
