The Waorani have a reputation of being the fiercest warriors in the Amazon.
They have never been conquered or colonized.
Since Oil Companies have entered their territory, the Waorani have made deals, *oil for a pack of noodles and two soccer balls*, deals in exchange for nothing.
The Waorani will continue to struggle for their survival, but in order to preserve their homeland and culture they must, paradoxically, adopt modern ways.
