One of the many episodes of the documentary TV series "Nova".
NOVA visits the Waorani Indians of Eastern Ecuador less than 30 years after their first contact with Western civilization.
Records a multidisciplinary expedition in 1983 to research the Waorani Indians who inhabit the rainforest of eastern Ecuador near the headwaters of the Amazon River. The Waorani are an ancient people who have traditionally inhabited some 8,000 square miles of rainforest where they have remained undisturbed because of their hostility toward outsiders. Today only a few families remain there, hunting game with blowguns and spears in the great expanse of forest. They also cultivate gardens, practicing ecologically sound methods and relying on tools and techniques similar to those used in the Stone Age. Director: Adrian Warren.
