I found an environment report on the TIPNIS region in PDF format for those who are interested and can read Spanish. I am sorry I cannot translate it, I wish I had the time.
It provides information on which indigenous peoples live around the area and which other groups of settlements are there. Especially it talks about the colonizers.
Of course, it talks about the importance of the region for the ecological well being of the areas in and around the park.
