Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest harbors one of humanity’s most fascinating stories: Two indigenous peoples continue to live there in voluntary isolation, as they have for millennia.

Yet loggers, miners and oil prospectors have targeted the natural resources of the Tagaeri and Taromenane tribes’ forest. They are provoking a deadly conflict by supplying guns and alcohol to the Huaorani tribe living near the camps, and agitating against the Tagaeri and Taromenane. This has repeatedly led to deadly raids.

State institutions have been observing the violence without getting involved, while the government is auctioning the last remaining undeveloped indigenous territories to the oil industry. No end to the killings is in sight.

Please lend your support to human rights activists and anthropologists and their open letter with 16 recommendations for the Ecuadorian government.
