This is really cool. They looked really freaked out by the plane though. Hopefully, they’ll just be left alone.

too late for that.

They’ll be drinking Coke and smoking Marbs in two weeks.

are they trying to shoot an arrow to the plane?

The Amazon runs on Dunkin.

What’s left of it.

Hell…with the way we are cutting down the Amazon, it won’t be long before we kill them off.

Well they can still live there, we just need to borrow their trees.

I saw that article earlier today, and thought it was pretty awesome.

They estimate there’s probably 100 other tribes throughout the world that have never been contacted by “civilization”.

It’s amazing that such people still exist, in a constantly shrinking world. I hope they can remain uncontacted for as long as possible.

It’s amazing that a whole tribe would not be found until this very day. I guess they didn’t get into the whole “Manifest Destiny” thing huh?

According to the BBC’s report of this there are a bunch of these tribes left along the Brazil/Peru border. I really hadn’t expected that either.

I’d love to wander my fat white ass into one of these tribes and live with them for a while. Sure would be this boring, comfortable life I have now.

Take that, untouched society, and screw you future anthropologists!

Why, that would be the moral way to handle it.

The good thing is I think the gov’t of Brazil does try its hardest to “leave” native tribes to their own ways but that doesn’t stop do-good crusaders from trying to bring them Jesus.

They have lived this many years without knowledge of modern civilization I think they’ll be alright…

Only one thing left to do! Plan a preemptive strike against them. Who knows what other weapons besides those spears and bows they may be a hiding.

D

I saw this on TV about an hour ago, one lady commenting on it said that “they look like oompa loompas!”.

I think we all know how this is going to end…

The gods must be crazy.

It does seem impossible that there are still tribes of people left uncontacted. Or rather uncontacted according to written history. Who knows if Ferdinand Magellan made contact with some island tribes waayyyyyyy out there in the Pacific and didn’t write down the visit in his Ship’s Log? You never know…

Hopefully they’ll be left alone

Just give them some land and a casino.
