It always fascinates me when I read about a tribe or group of people who haven’t come into contact with the civilized world. Reuters ran a story this morning on a tribe in South America, located on the border between Brazil and Peru, who were poised to shoot their arrows as the plane flew overhead. The plane snapped a few pictures of their huts. Incredible!
With the demands of logging and the deforestation taking place in this region, one has to guess there will be few of these tribes left in the coming years as the populations and requirements for natural resources carve up what remains of the Amazonian basis and all that inhabit this area.
Survival International suggests there are approximately 100 remaining tribes worldwide that haven’t been contacted by present day society.
