Trivia: Many of the people who played the natives were actual native South Americans who spoke little English. They were given free reign to say whatever lines they wanted, and it is rumored that in a couple scenes they're actually cursing up a storm.
Goofs: Factual errors: Indian characters don't speak Guarani - the language of the Paraguayan Indians - but Wawnana - the language of the Colombian Indians who performed in the movie.
