The Tagaeri and Taromenane (TandT) are two indigenous groups that still live in voluntary isolation in the region which was once the ancestral Waorani territory. It is believed that both groups are relatives of the Waorani indigenous group. Yet, nowadays, this area is a complex mix of overlapping designations comprising among others the Yasuni National Park, the Waorani Ethnic Reserve, oil concessions, and more recently the so-called Zona Intangible- ZI (are free of extractive activities). This latter, was expressively created in 1999 in order to protect TandT from outside threats such illegal logging and the oil expansion. However, it was designated without fixed boundaries and over the years it was widely unenforced. This situation led to several bloody confrontations between illegal loggers and those groups. As a result, in 2006 a group of Ecuadorian activists petitioned the IACHR to intervene in the problem. It ruled in favor of them and called on the Ecuador government to adopt specific Precautionary Measures. The government responded positively and in 2007 set the ZI boundaries and launched an official uncontacted peoples policy. However, since 2008 until present this policy has been relegated to oil interests resulting in the bidding of the Armadillo oil field in 2011.
