Huni Kuin Tribe – Kaxinawá
Until 1946, the Huni Kuin of Peru remained isolated in the virgin forest, far from the rivers that the merchants navigated. They preferred independence and isolation to dependency that implied greater access to weapons and metal tools.
Through the Yaminawa they accomplished a few things, until in the mid-1940s they decided they needed more and sent a six-man team to the Taraya River for direct negotiations.
Over time, the Huni Kuin made the decision to seek contact with civilization, a decision with profound consequences, which was questioned by the Kaxinawá themselves, who a previous generation had chosen the opposite position. In this region, even today, live ethnic groups, Pano and Arawak, who avoid any contact with non-indigenous society.
