This report discusses the struggles and historical legal achievements of the Waorani people of Pastaza, which forced the Ecuadorian state into respecting their right to prior consultation and halted the auctioning of oil Block 22.

The report discusses community mapping as a strategic tool for empowerment and territorial defence, and explores its place in legal proceedings that culminated in Ecuadorian courts affirming the Waorani people’s rights to self-determination and prior consultation.
