It's funny that people see the fact that they have bows and arrows as a sign of contact with other people.

As far as I know, the Brazilian army does not use bows and arrows, and those were already out of fashion when the first European (or those that worked directly with Europeans) started systematic exploration of the Amazonian jungle.

When the Portuguese "found" Brasil the natives already had bows and arrows.

Now they will have to constantly try and keep their old ways pure from the corrupt world that will try and "teach" them when really they could teach a LOT more to us than we could ever teach to them.
They are now doomed to corruption as the world will cast its ugly shadow among them.


Do you really think it's fair if we lord our superior civilization over theirs without giving them a chance to join it?

Just don't tell the Christians! They will gladly rush out their to spread their word and their diseases.


wow. I am sure glad that all the anthropoligists that film these remote tribes are purely disease free. It must be amazing to be absolutely disease free and totally have ZERO effect on someone while visiting and 'studying' them.


oh, and by the way, though it is apparently not recipricol, GOD loves you!

I love God, no issues there. I just don't like most Christians.

I'd love to find some tribe like this and swoop down and make them worship me as a god. Could you imagine how much fun it would be?

Who will be God when technology, industry, and civilization fail you, but their bows still shoot, their arrows still stick, and their reloads still grow on trees?

Sorry if this was already posted, but according to this link it was a publicity stunt by the photographer, José Carlos Meirelles, to try and save them and their environment from logging. The tribe has been known since 1910.

I read about this yesterday, but the news site stated that they had only been known about for twenty years. Even though Meirelles knew of their existence for some time it appears they have been untouched and to the wider world it really was a "first contact" situation. Apparently the area is so remote, aircraft are not known to fly overhead.

Thanks for the update.
