Preface

IT pains my heart to know that up to the very second that you are reading this hub, there are still 100 uncontacted indigenous tribes the world over and more than half of these uncivilized creations of the Almighty, according to Survival International, are located in the amazonian wilds of South America, particularly in the rain forests of Brazil and Peru. Hardly able to provide sustenance for my loved ones, I ponder what I can do to help alleviate their standard of living. So I made up my mind to write something about one of them so the world may focus on it and lift a hand to improve their way of life.

Lost tribe photographed

I am concerned with an unknown indigenous mountain people with an unknown language. which was discovered lately in the mountain fastnesses of Brazil and Peru. This lost tribe first gained limelight and prominence when FUNAI (short for Brazil National Indian Foundation) people, in cooperation with the government of Brazil, on board an aircraft got a series of aerial pictures of them and have them published in appropriate periodicals.

Photographs are testimonies

Said the government of Brazil that its main purpose of getting the images was to produce evidence that such kind of human beings do really exist and to protect their ancestral lands and domain as well. It was likewise done to silence unbelievers.

Land-grabbing must stop to protect tribal domain

Bear in mind that these tribal people are made of diverse idiosyncracies, each has its own way of doing things, they differ in the language they speak, difference in cultural upbringing and living in their own and distinct territory. And faced with a big problem caused by the inroads of the logging and mining industries, all of these tribes are pushed deeper and deeper into the forest heartland. Imagine the magnitude of the problem. Diverse groups of unlettered people packed sardine-like with limited land to till. What will happen? Trouble is sure to come The law of the jungle will come in place. And people by hook or by crook will do anything to survive. Perhaps this is what Survival International Director Stephen Corry mean when he said that such tribes would "soon be made extinct" if their lands are not protected. Aside, illnesses ranging from smallpox to common cold is another risk facing these indigenous people. This fact was revealed from other tribes that were contacted earlier.

Your OPINION will be highly appreciated

Do you favor transferring indigenous tribesmen to populated places to embrace modern way of life?

Very amazing scene

Series of pictures displayed in the gallery above were the products of the team FUNAI and other officals who rode in an airplane to shoot these aerial pictures.of this unknown uncontacted tribe in the amazonian wilderness up Brazil and Peru. Just see the pictures and read the captions so that you can have full comprehension of what kind this tribe of people are.

One very interesting aspect of the picture taking is at the pass of the airplane- aside from the first- with their camera ready, they were surprised to see no more women and children but able-bodied men painted red brandishing weapons and firing arrows at the passing plane.

      mexjapanico, hello and thanks for asking. This is my opinion. Leave them alone and respect their privacy and culture as a people, but the government must protect their land from encroachment, especially from loggers, their health issues, especially need for medicine upon their request. Cultural minorities must be made to understand that government is ready at all times to assist them.

      What if they don't want their standard of living to be "alleviated?" Not everyone has first world values and ideals, nor should they.
