Default Uncontacted Tribe found in the Amazone

How cool is this shit,

'Uncontacted tribe' sighted in Amazon - CNN.com

Can you imagine the poor guys trying to hit the airplane with their bows. At least the Brazilian Gov tries to protect them.

I saw this today also. Very interesting. As said before, I'm glad the government is protecting them. Where they live is beautiful

That shit would of been funny as fuck. Although similar things have happened in Colombia with tribes defending their land against tourist and other groups. The guerrillas usually sell them all their old weapons for gold that the tribe owns, and then the tribes have a way of defending themselves.

yea but how long they gonna stay uncontacted now that the news is out? especially since it gives general directions to their camps.

perhaps an attempt to document them will turn out like cannibal holocaust....

anyone else find this statement to be a bit not right...

"Researchers have produced aerial photos of jungle dwellers who they say are among the few remaining peoples on Earth who have had no contact with the outside world."

if they've had no contact with the outside world, how the hell did the researchers know what they were saying???


and another statement that's just not right...

"Its director, Stephen Cory, said the new photographs highlight the need to protect uncontacted people from intrusion by the outside world."

where the fuck is OUR protection from the outside world??? we can't live without the outside world ruling us. try to go live in the woods somewhere & when big brother finds out, see if he don't tax your ass, fill you with disease, take your kids & call it child abuse, and throw you in jail for living off the land for free.
