Comment[edit]

For this article I will be adding sections to further detail the issues and way of life of the Ecuadorian Ingenious groups. I will add a section on the issue with Texaco oil company and the impact it had on the Ecuadorian people and the rainforest. There is a resinating issue with the Texaco company and how they basically came to Ecuador and destroyed the environment by polluting their forest, rivers etc. Texaco created a 498 kilometer Trans-Andean Ecuadorian pipeline in order to establish a functioning petroleum system. There were many negations that took place before the construction of this structure. Pollution rapidly grew soon after they drilled into the Oriente. It can also be said that this was the beginning of the death of culture to the people of the rainforest. There is ongoing difficulties for the people who live in the forest because of the oil system there. Due to the fact that Ecuador lacked extensive knowledge on how petroleum extraction functioned corporations were easily able to take over and do as they felt fit for economic prosperity. They are quite a few tribes of indigenous people who reside in the rainforest of Ecuador, such including the Shiwiar, Secoyra and Siona people. One example of struggles they encountered was illness due to the pollution of their water resources. Invasion of their land was another issue they dealt with. The construction of roads and illegal declaration of their land as public lead to settlers migrating and residing amongst them. I will go further into detail on this discourse.

Book listing on front page[edit]

This book was placed in an unconnected section in the article, so I'm moving it hear in case anyone needs the info: Gerlach, Allen. Indians, Oil, and Politics: A Recent History of Ecuador. Rowman & Littlefield, 2002. ISBN 0-8420-5108-2. -Uyvsdi (talk) 00:50, 15 February 2011 (UTC)Uyvsdi so I am moving it "here" is the correct spelling```` — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.238.185.159 (talk) 22:02, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

The article lacks pictures. There is a lack of information on most of the subdivisions including religion Structure a language section. More background information needed. Etiennebarr (talk) 01:28, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

Your article seems great so far! Some of the links show up in red so maybe you can double the name of the article or if there is an article to link the topic to. Jules823 (talk) 10:47, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

This is a really well organized article. Maybe you can add a little bit more information about the Civil War that resulted from the Spanish Conquest or add a link that explains it more in depth. Also, perhaps if more pictures are available, maybe add one or two of the indigenous peoples. Lastly, when describing the different archaeological periods, just an editing point would be that you could make each period bold so that they stand out. --Groovy304 (talk) 15:43, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Expansion possibilities[edit]

A few suggestions:

  • There's a big historical jump from conquest to petroleum. At least, the article should discuss Indian tribute and forced labor after independence, the rubber boom, and Indian peasant strikes and organizing in the 20th century. Good sources include:

Also, as flipping through Becker shows, there were several national indigenous organizations before CONAIE.--Carwil (talk) 15:42, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
