Reviews

“This study of 2 Huaorani communities living along two different oil roads in the province of Orellana, Ecuador, brings complementary elements that contribute to our ethnological understanding of this unusual native Amazonian society, while, at the same time, expanding anthropological discussions of human flourishing.” • Laura Rival, University of Oxford

Description

During the past two decades Ecuadorians have engaged in a national debate around Buen Vivir (living well). This ethnography discusses one of the ways in which people experience well-being or aspire to live well in Ecuadorian Amazonia. Waponi Kewemonipa (living well) is a Waorani notion that embraces ideas of good conviviality, health and certain ecological relations. For the Waorani living along the oil roads, living well has taken many pathways. Notably, they have developed new spatial organizations as they move between several houses, and navigate between the economy of the market and the economy of the forest.

Andrea Bravo Díaz is the Chief Editor of the Ecuadorian Institute of Cultural Heritage and is part of the research team at the Institute of Public Health at the Catholic University of Ecuador. She specialises in Ecuadorian Amazonia, while exploring collaborative methods for addressing health-related issues.
