The Tagaeri (also spelled Tageri, Tagairi, Tagueiri) and Taromenane (also spelled Taromenani) are each considered people in voluntary isolation (PVI), culturally related to the Waorani. They are distinct groups. The Tagaeri are a splinter group that separated from the rest of Wao population in the 1960s (Rival 2002), while the Taromenane, despite being from the same ethnographic or cultural family tree as the Waorani, have been separated for more than 100 years from them and have been in a conflictual relationship with the Waorani since the end of the nineteenth century.
We also discuss an equally diverse set of influences that Waorani people exert on the oil assemblage itself. Chapter 5, “Oil as Risk in Waorani Territory,” examines the lived experience of oil in two indigenous communities, Gareno and Tiwino. Both located along oil roads, each is a recipient of programs and projects funded by oil revenues. In these communities, citizenship under the Revolución Ciudadana entails aspiring to “improvement” (for instance, wage employment, formal education, and Spanish literacy) coincident with notions of modernity.
Smaller gardens and lower intensity of trail use made it more difficult for raiding groups to locate housing sites, and if a raid did occur, the raided group could flee to a location where food was available. The fundamental unit of Waorani society was the nanicabo, a residential unit of 30 to 50 related kin living in a long house. It was economically self-sufficient and autonomous. Sharing within the residential unit was intense and exchange with the outside was minimal (Rival 1992). Typically, a nanicabo was composed of an older man (after whom it was named), his wives, one or two married daughters and their children, his unmarried children, and one of his brothers and the latter’s family.
