PostSubject: The Huaorani   Sat Jan 08, 2011 12:42 am

The Huaorani, Waorani or Waodani, also known as the Waos, are native Amerindians from the Amazonian Region of Ecuador (Napo, Orellana and Pastaza Provinces) who have marked differences from other ethnic groups from Ecuador. (The alternate name Auca is a pejorative exonym used by the neighboring Quechua Indians, and commonly adopted by Spanish-speakers as well. Auca awqa in Quechua means "enemy".) They comprise almost 4,000 inhabitants and speak the Huaorani language, a linguistic isolate, i.e. unrelated to any other language. Their ancestral lands are located between the Curaray and Napo rivers, about 50 miles (80 km) south of El Coca. These homelands approximately 120 miles (190 km) wide and 75 to 100 miles (120 to 160 km) from north to south are threatened by oil exploration and illegal logging practices. In the past, Huaorani were able to aggressively protect their culture and lands from both indigenous enemies and settlers.
