  • Untouched Tribe found

    Researchers have found a Brazilian group, that has not been seen by outside eyes.

    Now there has been a number of tribes being discovered, but this is one of the only tribes that in a photo, you can see them react to the plane flying overhead.

    You could just guess what they was thinking, some even had arrows aimed at the plane. But unlike with most tribes, this one is in danger. Now all the tribes all in danger, but this one, danger is closer and more imminent.

    As Loggers are getting near the area, in which could cause the end of this tribe.

    Deep in the Amazon forest thousands of people still live in relative isolation from the rest of the world.

    In a recent press release, the Brazilian government confirmed the existence of another uncontacted tribe of about 200 people living in the Vale do Javari reservation. The reservation, located near the Peruvian border, is roughly the size of Portugal. At least another 14 uncontacted tribes, with a total population of about 2000 individuals, call the area home.

    The newly observed group lives in four large thatch-roofed buildings and grows corn, bananas, peanuts and other crops.

    Brazil's National Indian Foundation, known by its Portuguese acronym FUNAI, first noticed clearings in the forest using satellite maps. But it wasn't until April that an airplane expedition was able to confirm the tribe's existence.

    "The work of identifying and protecting isolated groups is part of Brazilian public policy," said the FUNAI coordinator for Vale do Javari, Fabricio Amorim, in a statement to the Associated Press. "To confirm something like this takes years of methodical work."

    FUNAI estimates there are 68 uncontacted tribes living in the Amazon. The organization uses airplanes to avoid disturbing the tribes through personal contact (I wonder what they thought of the airplane), but that doesn't mean others are so respectful of the tribe's right to privacy.

    Illegal fishing, logging, and poaching brings people into the protected area. Oil exploration on the Peruvian side of the border is another threat. Missionaries and drug traffickers also invade the lands of the indigenous groups, said Amorim.

    Ever seen Medicine Man starring Sean Connery? The movie is a fictionalized account of what can happen when native peoples and colonists colide. The outsiders can damage the land and influence the culture of indigenous peoples. They can also bring diseases which can wipe out whole populations.

    Brazil's indigenous peoples won the legal right to their traditional lands in Brazil's 1988 constitution. The document mandated that all indigenous ancestral lands be demarcated and turned over to tribes within five years.

    Indigenous groups now control 11 percent of Brazil's territory, including 22 percent of the Amazon.

    Allowing indigenous groups the right to their homelands is not just a matter of human rights. The rest of the world can benefit from their knowledge. I recently attended a lecture by Mark Plotkin, author of Tales of a Shaman's Apprentice: An Ethnobotanist Searches for New Medicines in the Amazon Rain Forest, at the University of Missouri in Columbia. He has spent years living with the people of the Amazon and learning from their traditional healers.

    In his lecture, he pointed out the numerous medicines and other useful materials and knowledge that can be gained from listening to the indigenous groups of the Amazon. They are also more effective at protecting the land and less expensive than hired park rangers.

          I read about this a week ago. I really don't think anything of it. I say leave 'em be, unless they require some sort of aid.

                        They should be left alone, but at the same time, what's the harm done if they are recorded. I realize there is some legal red tape to get around there, but imagine how much you can learn from people that have not turned into a cultural hodge podge, have not been exposed to a military industrial complex, and have no currency based societal structure. They could be caste (or something similar), but they haven't been exposed to anything else.

                            Aid? Lol they have been undiscovered for how long? I know what you meant. The sad part is as soonas they come in contact w modern civilization they will die from some illness they aren't immune to. It's pretty awesome though that there is so much left unexplored on this planet.
