The photographs of the tribe near the border between Brazil and Peru are rare evidence that such groups exist.

This is absolutely amazing! I had no idea there were still people out there waiting to be discovered.
I just hope this can be the only image of them we need, I don't see any need to introduce all our crap to them.

We probably should leave them alone. But it does spark an interest. Makes you want to know about how they live their lives, what kind of culture they have and such.
‘We did the overflight to show their houses, to show they are there, to show they exist,’ said uncontacted tribes expert José Carlos dos Reis Meirelles Júnior. Meirelles works for FUNAI, the Brazilian government’s Indian affairs department. ‘This is very important because there are some who doubt their existence.’
