Rather, along the Napo river flow and river Curaray they call the name of the region, Quehueri'ono. Very difficult to reach areas.
It is estimated, the Huaorani have occupied the Amazon forest a thousand years ago. They too, have never been out of the forest and reject the arrival of strangers. They isolate themselves, do not even wear clothes at all.
Huaorani life is very dependent on nature. They drank from the river, hunting and picking fruits. They know, where the fruits are dangerous or where the river filled with crocodiles and prohibited from approaching it.
Huaorani still maintain ancestral beliefs. One of them, a ban on deer hunting because it considered her as the human eye. One more thing, they should not kill the snake because it is a symbol of bad omen.
Considered dangerous tribe
When in the middle ages, a gob of Europe landed in South America and the Spanish invaded Ecuador, Huaorani brave fight. They refused to be moved to urban areas and keep the forest is maintained.
From the historical record, the Huaorani unbeaten record. Frankly, they really understand the ins and outs of the Amazon forest. Plus, its main weapon is a toxic chopsticks 2 meters.
