The Taromenane are an uncontacted clan living in Yasuni National Park, at the Ecuadorian Amazon Basin. Together with the Tagaeri they make up the two last known indigenous groups living in voluntary isolation in Ecuador. The clan is believed to be distantly related to the Huaorani people.

It is estimated there are 150–300 Taromenane still maintaining a nomadic lifestyle in the rain forest and perhaps only 20–30 surviving Tagaeri, although these numbers are uncertain.

The Taromenane has recently been under threat from oil developments and illegal logging in the Yasuni National Park. On February 15, 2008, authorities in Ecuador agreed to investigate reports that five tribespeople belonging to the Taromenane and Tagaeri tribes were killed by illegal loggers.[1]
