What beautiful people! Amazing! Man has lost touch with nature and the Earth, in whole. Otherwise, being that close to animals would be nothing new to us.

Where did they get the rifles? Great post but I do not think they would be considered a long lost tribe if they have access to modern technology.

It makes you wonder, is this what life was supposed to be?

All our advances are fantastic, but we've lost... THAT.

They tend to live in mobile huts made of skins with a big fire in the middle for heat.

Excellent thread and thanks! The Eagle Hunters blew my cool!

A bit off topic, and this is really odd, but this pic....

That person looks insanely similar to a monkey to me (in the face at least)....made me think about evolution for a minute.....

Lol, yeah, evolution.....

Modern humans in the developed world are more similar to monkeys than these people.....

Just lol at modern consumerist cattle thinking that they are "more evolved"..... pathetic.

Absolutely not right, Rocker...

Everything you are saying is from a limited and narrow perspective, from the point of view of an artificial and brain-dead modern civilization. What you're missing is the notion of what 'being in harmony with Nature' really means.

These people don't suffer from the adverse affects of 'romanticism'; nor of those neurotic thoughts of 'the grass is always greener' attitude. Those concepts belong to a people who have lost any sense of 'feeling' and their senses have been dulled in order to satisfy their false need for 'convenience'.

The tribal peoples derive intense satisfaction from the daily pleasures and rewards of simply being alive and conversing with nature and its animals. They feel the Spirit of Life that we modern civilizations have totally lost touch with.

To them, we are the ones who are spritually lost.

Actually, when shown the way that modern people live, nomads like these marvel at the luxuries we have. Hunter gatherer peoples do not live care free, easy lives. There is, as noted before, a reason that the vast majority of humans no longer live that way.

The fact that they have to rely on tourism to really survive should make it very clear how hard it is to survive the way they do. Add onto that the fact that they do have a higher mortality rate at younger ages, problems with malnutrition, and a noted propensity to drink and you get a much clearer picture. These people aren't living some idealized life in perfect harmony with nature. They have to fight with nature every day just to survive, and they have the same basic problems we all do. They solve their problems the same ways we do. They drink. They do drugs. They often can't get enough to eat. They die young more often than not, beaten to death by the ravages of their life style.

These nomadic peoples live a lifestyle that every single human at one point in history had to live. There is a reason we no longer do, and it has nothing to do with a loss of connection to anything. We wanted reliable food, so we began growing crops and cultivating animals. We wanted reliable shelter, so we began building huts. We wanted to be able to kill our food more easily, so we began making weapons out of metal. We wanted to be able to do it from a distance, so we made arrows out of spears.

Neither side sees the other as spiritually lost. That is, in fact, an entirely ethnocentric concept, and a reflection on yourself, not their mindset. To the nomads on the Mongolian Steppes, we're the people who come with the money they need to survive. Not spiritually lost. Start looking at the world without your strangely rose colored glasses and take it in for what is it. No lifestyle is better, merely different. It's that simple.
