Project Update: Tribe In Trouble Photo of the Day

It's not an exaggeration to say that oil extraction can lead to the destruction of a tribe. One danger is that oil companies buy off and win over some members of the tribe, then use them against those who resist. Ecuadorean law says the government has responsibility to protect the uncontacted Indians, but that law isn't worth much. Environmental activists and Indian rights advocates say money - not the law - often guides governmental decisions. And that leaves room for abuses. Among the tales told in Huaorani territory: That someone has airdropped poisoned food in uncontacted Indians' territory. If true, who would do that? Who would pay for it? How many Indians fell ill or died as a result?

Thanks for your interest in finding answers.
