Notas Amazónicas frente a la pandemia, el caso Waorani en Ecuador

Andrea Bravo Díaz

Resumen

Estas notas etnográficas fueron registradas en el territorio Waorani, en la Amazonía ecuatoriana durante los dos primeros meses de cuarentena por la pandemia del COVID-19. El proceso reflexivo surgido en el vértigo de la pandemia tiene un carácter preliminar, al tiempo que se convierte en un insumo para mirarnos de nuevo en el futuro, quizás, desde la post-pandemia. Los procesos de interpretación de la pandemia desarrollados por los Waorani incluyen la reactivación de narrativas orales sobre epidemias recientes, lo cual informa sus estrategias de salud preventiva.
