Previously Unknown Tribe of Amazonian Indians Discovered


Photos released on May 29 show bow-and-arrow toting tribesmen near the border of Brazil and Peru. Though they've probably had contact with other indigenous people, they are believed to have never been contacted by the industrialized world.

Amazon expert Thomas Lovejoy thinks the previously unknown tribe is probably the remnant of a larger indigenous tribe that was forced deeper into the Amazon rainforest by encroaching settlements. Lovejoy said that contact is probably inevitable.

"The right answer is to have the kind of contact and change that the tribes themselves manage the pace of it," Lovejoy said. The area where the tribe was sighted is home to about half of the estimated 100 uncontacted tribes remaining in the world.

  I saw these pics earlier  
This morning, and it actually really irritated me. Leave the people alone, much like they want to be. We have no business flying around them gawking and taking pictures. Not to mention they don't exactly seem to be in a welcoming pose. How much longer until some scientist goes in there for "research" or some other bull.

  i remember  
some years ago (around 1982 or something) there was and alleged undiscovered tribe in amazonas, the natgeo ppl make a documentary about them, but it turned out to be a hoax, wonder if this time is real

Amazonian "Indians"?

  Judging by their defensive stance ...  
theyve had contact with the industrialised world before ...

When the industrialised world starts lobbing nukes at each other they will prolly survive because that area has little importance of strategic or military value.

So when the aliens come back they can ascend.

Haha, I agree, it will be really ironic when all of a sudden these people are the most technologically and socially advanced on earth after we blow each other up.

imaginable there are yet many other tribes in the world in some places, I think they do'nt want to have themselves disturbed.

"they are believed to have never been contacted by the industrialized world."

well now u did it, idiot, flying over with an helicopter was surely the best thing to do, hey?

"Lovejoy said that contact is probably inevitable." this guy is a genius, isn't he ?

"The right answer is to have the kind of contact and change that the tribes themselves manage the pace of it,"

sure why not, until the time we will force them to leave, just to remember that each year, 20 000 km2 are being deforested.. approximately half the size of switzerland.

they could always work in a soja farm, no ?

Yes I know it what you say, for me for example to get out of the habit of the alcohol for it was needed a huge power, now the cigarette is already left.

  With NTC....  
what do these people need with all our interference, I hope they stop pestering them right now.
  by: captainJane     06/01/2008 05:39 PM     
They were only out to prove that these people existed, so that the country's policies reflected their existence.

Thats the extent of the contact that was involved.

  The whole thing was a hoax
