Uncontacted Tribe found in Amazon

Researchers have produced aerial photos of jungle dwellers who they say are among the few remaining peoples on Earth who have had no contact with the outside world.


Indigenous Brazilians are photographed during an overflight in May, reacting to the sights over their camp.

Taken from a small airplane, the photos show men outside thatched communal huts, necks craned upward, pointing bows toward the air in a remote corner of the Amazonian rainforest.

Read about this earlier today, almost posted it myself. Isn't it incredible there are still factions of humanity living like our ancestors did thousands of years ago? We just landed yet another probe on Mars last week, and we still have purely primal groups of humans living on our planet. Great stuff ;-D

Rape their society.

Slowly introduce technology.

It would be ever so entertaining. :-D

But seriously, I'm pretty sure they're going to protect them and ensure they stay isolated.

^^ yeah, they're just looking at them, in a protection kind of way, as they are other 'untouched' tribes in the world. Not that our magical flying machines 'aren't touching them' or anything, they're supposedly scouting areas that need protection from intrusion.

Imagine living in a tribal sense. no car, no job, no internet... just livin. L-I-V-I-N.

alright alright alright.

Wouldn't be surprised if that guy in red is Tiki.

Wasn't there a "new uncontacted tribe" called the Tasaday's that was claimed to have been found back in the early 70's that turned out to be a hoax and nearly crippled National Geographic? :-?

Yeah I have a hard time believing they are "uncontacted."

LOL! They look orange...they're the long lost Oompa Loompa tribe!!! :-b
