Like many other indigenous groups, the Huaorani of eastern Ecuador are facing many challenges as they attempt to confront the globalization of capitalism in the 21st century. In 1991, they formed a political organization as a direct response to the growing threat to Huaorani territory posed by oil exploitation, colonization, and other pressures. The author explores the structures and practices of the organization, as well as the contradictions created by the imposition of an alien and hierarchical organizational form on a traditionally egalitarian society. This study has broad implications for those who work toward "cultural survival" or try to "save the rainforest."

Huaorani of the Western Snippet documents changes that the Huaorani culture of eastern Ecuador underwent over a period of fifty years. Part I focuses on the geographical, historical, sociological and economical background of the Ecuadorian Amazon as well as the problems that indigenous groups of this region face. Part II describes different aspects of Huaorani culture, and its consecutive subsections present research completed by anthropologists in different decades of twentieth century, and the data is reviewed and supplemented with data gathered during my research (2007-2013). Part III explores the life of a Huao man, Miñe, who serves as a local shaman. His different social roles are discussed in consecutive subsections in order to understand what shaped him as a person of the Huaorani group.

The indigenous people of the Amazon Basin known as the Huaorani are one of the world’s most intriguing peoples. The community of just under four thousand in Ecuador has been known to the public primarily for their historical identity as a violent society. But Laura Rival reveals the Huaorani in all their humanity and creativity through a longitudinal ethnography, bringing a deeper perspective beyond the stereotype. Rival’s intimate knowledge of Huaorani culture spans twenty-five years. Here in a collection of broad-ranging essays, she offers a fascinating and provocative study. The first section, “Among Forest Beings,” shows that the Huaorani have long adapted to life in the tropical rain forest with minimal reliance on horticulture, yet have developed a complex relationship with plants. In “In the Longhouse,” the second section, Rival focuses on the intimate relations that create human persons and enact kinship relations. She also discusses women’s lives and perspectives. The third section, “In the Midst of Enemies,” considers how Huaorani society fits in larger political and economic contexts, illustrating how native values shape their encounters with oil companies, the state, and other external forces. Rival carefully analyzes insider/outsider dialectics wherein Huaorani people re-create meaningful and valued worlds in the face of alien projects, such as petroleum development, carbon trading, or intercultural education. Capitalizing on the author’s decades-long study and interactions in the community, Huaorani Transformations in Twenty-First-Century Ecuador brings new insights to the Huaorani’s unique way of relating to humans, to other-than-humans, and to the forest landscape they have inhabited for centuries.

Serving as both a narrative account and a general explanatory framework for understanding violence, this case study on the psychological and cultural dynamics of violence focuses on explaining the roots of violence in Waorani society while developing a theoretical model to explain violence in other societies.

To most outsiders, the hills of the Scottish Borders are a bleak and foreboding space - usually made to represent the stigmatized Other,Ad Finis, by the centers of power in Edinburgh, London, and Brussels. At a time when globalization seems to threaten outr sense of place, people of the Scottish borderlands provide a vivid case study of how the being-in-place is central to the sense of self and identity. Since the end of the thirteenth century, people living in the Scottish Border hills have engaged in armed raiding on the frontier with England, developed capitalist sheep farming in the newly united kingdom of Great Britain, and are struggling to maintain their family farms in one of the marginal agricultural rural regions of the European Community. Throughout their history, sheep farmers living in these hills have established an abiding sense of place in which family and farm have become refractions of each other. Adopting a phenomenological perspecitve, this book concentrates on the contemporary farming practices - shepherding, selling lambs and rams at auctions - as well as family and class relations through which hill sheep fuse people, place, and way of life to create this sense of being-at-home in the hills.
Politics and Petroleum in Ecuador

In 1972 Ecuador began to produce and export petroleum in the Amazon interior, and the formulation and execution of the petroleum policy became central to the political life of the nation. The nation's armed forces seized political power that same year and continued to rule until the reestablishment of democratic pluralist government in 1979. In this book, John D. Martz probes the differences and similarities between military authoritarianism and democratic pluralism through an analysis of the politics of petroleum in Ecuador. The Ecuadorian experience provides an ideal laboratory to test the policymaking characteristics and the overall performances of the two regimes ideal-types. Martz uses a textured and detailed analysis of global oil companies and nationalist politics to trace the growth and evolution of Ecuador's petroleum industry. The course of partisan and sectoral politics and the internal workings of military politics are also examined. Against this interplay of politics and the nationalistic struggle against multinational pressures, Martz compares policymaking under military and civilian government. John D. Martz is a professor of political science at Pennsylvania State University. He is the author and editor of more than a dozen books on Latin American politics and was the editor of the Latin American Research Review from 1975 to 1980.

La región subandina ocupa una creciente importancia en los mercados inrernacionales de hidrocarburos, pues provee con una fuente de abastecimiento en petróleo (en el caso de Venezuela, Ecuador y en menor medida Colombia) y gas (en el caso de Venezuela, Bolivia y Perú). Sin embargo, la extracción y el transporte de hidrocarburos van a la par conserias amenazas para con las comunidades locales y el medio ambiente. De hecho, el avance de la frontera extractiva en la región, desde la década del sesenta, conllevó graves impactos sociales y ambientales, sea directa (contaminación, deforestación, etc.) o indirectamente (colonización agraria, urbanización no controlada, etc.). En este sentido, para la Amazonia, el siglo XXI será marcado por la confrontación entre los partidarios de la expansión de las actividades extractivas y aquellos que desean limitarlas para fines de conservación - especialmente dentro de los territorios indígenas y las áreas protegidas. Fruto de una investigación llevada a cabo por el Observatorio socio-ambiental de la FLACSO, este libro evalúa la política ambiental del Estado y la viabilidad del modelo de conservación imperante en el parque Yasuní (Ecuador). En seis capítulos se analizan sucesivamente las contradicciones entre política ambiental y política petrolera en esta zona; la incidencia de los conflictos ambientales en los esfuerzos de cooperación institucional; los conflictos territoriales en la margen derecha del río Ñapo; la relación entre el indigenismo estatal y la configuración del territorio huao; las principales normas nacionales e internacionales vigentes en las áreas protegidas; y la incidencia de la opinión pública en las políticas públicas. Las problemáticas que se pretende abordar, más allá del mero estudio de caso, interesan también otras áreas de la región andino-amazónica, donde se ha desarrollado la extracción de hidrocarburos en las últimas décadas. ¿Qué instituciones tienen competencia en la gobernanza ambiental? ¿Qué insttumentos de regulación son aplicables al área de estudio? ¿Qué estrategias adoptaron las comunidades indígenas y sus organizaciones para conseguir la legalización de sus territorios? ¿Cómo se articularon éstas con las acciones de las organizaciones indígenas nacionales e internacionales? ¿Qué papel asumió el movimiento ecologista ecuatoriano en los conflictos ambientales generados por las actividades petroleras? ¿Qué incidencia tuvieron aquellos conflictos en las reformas legales y las políticas...
