I Went Hunting Naked in the Amazon Jungle With Waorani Tribe


The Waorani people who live deep in the Amazon jungle of remote eastern Ecuador are one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes in the world and they get most of what they eat by catching it from the jungle, with handmade blowguns and curare poison that they make themselves. My friends and I had the pleasure of accompanying them on one of their hunts recently and I wanted to try doing it like they do, which is to say completely naked head-to-toe. Hands down one of the craziest things I’ve ever done!

HUGE thanks to Wareka for guiding us into the jungle, you can check out his IG here: https://www.instagram.com/amazonwaoraniexpeditions/
