Rare uncontacted tribe photographed in Amazon

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Amazon Indians from one of the world's last uncontacted tribes have been photographed from the air, with striking images released on Thursday showing them painted bright red and brandishing bows and arrows.

The photographs of the tribe near the border between Brazil and Peru are rare evidence that such groups exist. A Brazilian official involved in the expedition said many of them are in increasing danger from illegal logging.

"What is happening in this region is a monumental crime against the natural world, the tribes, the fauna and is further testimony to the complete irrationality with which we, the 'civilized' ones, treat the world," Jose Carlos Meirelles was quoted as saying in a statement by the Survival International group.

One of the pictures, which can be seen on Survival International's Web site (http://www.survival-international.org), shows two Indian men covered in bright red pigment poised to fire arrows at the aircraft while another Indian looks on.

Another photo shows about 15 Indians near thatched huts, some of them also preparing to fire arrows at the aircraft.

"The world needs to wake up to this, and ensure that their territory is protected in accordance with international law. Otherwise, they will soon be made extinct," said Stephen Corry, the director of Survival International, which supports tribal people around the world.

Of more than 100 uncontacted tribes worldwide, more than half live in either Brazil or Peru, Survival International says. It says all are in grave danger of being forced off their land, killed and ravaged by new diseases.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Pretty cool - though there's a lot less of those tribes than there used to be even going back 50 years. The ones in the really remote cut-off places like the Amazon and Indonesia are pretty much the only ones left.

It's suprising really - I used to watch a lot of old movies (Tarzan movies, things like King Solomon's Mines) as a kid and some of them seemed to be actually filmed in Africa. A lot of those old movies actually had footage of real African tribesmen whose cultures simply don't exist anymore - so the film record is pretty much all that's left.

BTW - in the picture is that tribesman firing a bow and arrow at the helicopter?

wow, cool


Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

I guess I understand that they would want to take pictures of these undocumented tirbes as proof to otehrs that they exist, but wouldn't it be better to just leave them be. In the one picture, they have their bows raised at the plane, which is something they may have never seen before and probably don't know what it is.

I'd rather take the researcher's words that there are undocumented tribes around then see pictures of them and have others wanting to go do some documentary on them.

It sounds like a cliche but I'd imagine that someone would want to do a lot of research before they go blundering in there. It may seem like a cliche but there's at least one of the remote Indonesian tribes which is thought to practice cannibalism (though obviously noone has confirmed this).

In fact after the tsunami a few years ago - helicopters were sent out to see if those jungle tribes were ok. They were.... The helicopter was seen off with a shower of arrows!
