Moi goes to Washington

In the Ecuadorian Amazon, indigenous Huaorani people waged an exhausting battle against the American petroleum interests that have begun drilling to two hundred million barrels of raw crude under their lands. Then Moi, a Huaorani leader, decided to try the diplomatic route.

This article appeared in the May 2, 1994, issue of The New Yorker magazine. It was written by Joe Kane. The photograph of Moi is by Richard Avedon.
