The Tagaeri and Taromenane are the last two Indigenous peoples living in voluntary isolation within Yasuní National Park, one of the most biodiverse places in the world. Despite its ecological and cultural significance, Yasuní is threatened by oil and timber activity.
Although Ecuador’s Constitution determines that all extractive activities are prohibited in territories of isolated peoples, the government has not taken effective measures to control the extraction.
Watch The Curse of Abundance and take action!
Yasuní National Park in the Ecuadorian Amazon is a haven of biodiversity and home to the Indigenous people who protect it – including Ecuador’s last peoples in voluntary isolation, the Taegeri and Taromenane. It also holds a third of the country’s oil reserves. This reality forms the backdrop for The Curse of Abundance (2019), a film that takes you deep into the Indigenous movement building global solidarity and support for Yasuní, against the oil industry and complicit government.
