I think there are many groups of people who may have heard about the outside world, but has never seen anything from it, my dad told me there are some in africa, if they saw a car they probably would think it was some demon or something lol.

Is it my imagination or does the third and fourth picture "the one in Black" look like maybe there is a mini bigfoot or some kind of missing link?

I just had a thought maybe the one in black is their witch doctor helping the fighters with some kinda spell to get rid of this evil demon Helicopter thing

I envy them.. no money, no worries. Just pure simple life and survival, technology is not needed to survive if you live in harmony with nature. Prolly hit up the ayahuesca every now and then too for meditating.. cool stuff.

Great thread OP.

I only count 5 individuals in the picture, with no real evidence of any others.

Seems a bit small for a tribe, of course there could be more undetected by the camera man.

Might this be a 'small' pocket of sorts? Possibly many more tribes as such, hidden throughout this area.

If this is the average size of the tribe(s), it would be quite possible to have many more that have gone unnoticed.

There's more than one picture, they are on page two of this thread. On the last picture you can see as many as ten people.

edit: twelve people, maybe thirteen.

It makes me wonder, everything everyone is saying here could very well be happening to us right now. Earth could be the lost world and they know we are here but don't want to alter our civilisation by making contact with us. Any contact from us with this tribe would bring diseases, war, religion, ideologies, technology.. imagine of our 'civilised' world was introduced to all of these from another world?

I liked the comment about the photograph and how someone from a tribe such as theirs wouldn't understand it or be able to see the 'picture' because nothing in the picture would exist in their reality. Maybe WE have seen evidence of other life out of this world but because it is so far removed from our own reality, we simply can't recognise or notice it.

Spying on them with spy satellites again.. it could be happening to us now.

They are blessed with being fortunate enough not to understand or know of our world.

My bad.

Must have missed that one

Still, even with 12 people in a tribe you would think they would be in the 'dying off' stage due to inbreeding with such small numbers.

Not to say a tribe couldn't survive with small numbers, it just seems unlikely that they could survive this long 'unnoticed' with no new blood lines being introduced into the hierarchy of the tribe.

Of course, this is only speculation of no new blood, but it would further my theory on other 'hidden' tribes in the area.

If anyones interested, although its fictional "the gods must be crazy" is probably a good movie to see regarding this topic of lost tribes. Even apocalypto

can't there be just one thing left alone in its natural state? sensationalism, sensationalism, all based on ratings and back-patting for the people that were looking to make that buck and breaking story. so sad.

perhaps their existence may be a lynch pin in preserving that part of the rain forest...?

Jeah, maybe they live in a small clan, within a community of small clans in the area.
If they would only marry outside their own clan it could work.

It's also possible that somewhere along the line, small groups of native people saw what was happening to their culture, and made the choice not to participate in the modernisation process.

Maybe they already know about the outside world, but choose to avoid it.

If we look at our own cultural histories, and how ancient cultures viewed strange objects in the sky and on land. It is most probable that these people would (if they have no knowledge of our civilisation) work the sighting of the chopper into their own belief system. Just as the Aztec believed Cortez was the returning plumed serpent.

It is most probable that many other of our flying craft have been spotted by these people and they haved explained the existence of the objects within the framework of their belief system.

As for UFO's as we know them. Who's to say that these people haven't been visited by luminous craft piloted by wierd little grey dudes?

The chopper must have buzzed them a few times at pretty low altitude to get those shots. It will definitely give them some cause for heated discussion for a good while.

I like the hut in the very back of the line that is nestled in between the trees.

This topic also brings up some good stuff to think about.

Just when allot of people are thinking about going back to live in the wild.
We find there are already some claiming the turf as their's. No place to run, no place to hide.
It always delights me when we find new stuff in the wild. New unexplored valleys, full of new animals. Flies in the face of arrogant modern man; who likes to think we know it all, and have it all figured out.
Hope that copter didn't drop any Coke bottles.

Us out here certainly know what they saw was real, but how could these people relate?
I'm just sayin'

Yep, they will say something similar as we do about UFO's .

I is part of their heritage now they saw it. I remeber another tribe that worshipped a wooden plane and a self made airstrip which they saw a intruments of a god that once landed there.

Et's look upon us that way, panicking running people with weapons pointing up. We don't say leave us alone, we say, tell us about your world and technology.

We are the lost tribe in the forest that is called universe.

Wow! Incredible pictures. I get goosebumps when looking at these beautiful, colorful people.
It also makes me think of some of the ironies. We here on ATS spend alot of time having healthy and robust debates about UFO's/Aliens, contact, disclosure, etc. People will postulate, "Well if the aliens were real, they would just land on the White House lawn, or motherships would pop up everywhere". But I read on some of the replies for this story people basically saying, leave these people alone, let them be. My question is, if we are being visited by beings from another planet/dimension, and if they are as benevolent, if not more so than us humans. Would it stand to reason that maybe they, like us are in the same situation? Maybe they have debates about observation-vs-contact, maybe they look at us as beautiful, colorful, complex, evolving beings who are just coming to consciousness. Maybe they are waiting for us to come out of our cocoons fully grown, developed, and ready to take flight.
Thanks for posting this fascinating story. I hope these tribal folk are allowed to exist as they probably have for thousands of years. Beautiful, colorful, unblemished human beings.

Will the world we know
Be the world we knew
Will we be alone
Will we be their zoo
Will we find ourselves in a revolution
An evolution revolution

First, and although I am not a specialist in these things, the tribes that live in Amazonia are always small when compared to the tribes from more open spaces, the way they live is not good for large groups.

Also, someone said that the one painted in black looked like a woman; the indians from Amazonia (and from other forests like this) do not look like the people from open country, like the Europeans or the North America indians, they are shorter and with different proportions.

Now, about the news, and because this happened in Brazil, I went looking for Brazilian sources, and this is what I have found so far.

After almost 20 hours in a single-engine airplane, the sertanista Jose Carlos Dos Reis Meirelles Júnior, coordinator of the Front of Etnoambiental Protection of the Funai, commanded a flight that resulted in the first photographs of the indians of one of the four isolated ethnicities that live in the border of the Acre with Peru. The women and its children had run away for the forest looking for protection, while the warriors of the tribe itook positions and reacted shooting arrows to the airplane.

We already knew of the existence of these peoples, but from now on, we have the material proof that the region is one of the few that houses the latest isolated or unknown ethnicities of the planet - said Jose Carlos Meirelles, with exclusivity for Terra Magazine.

In the headwaters of the Igarapé Xinane, known on the maps of geography as Cachoeira (waterfall), very close to parallel 10, the limit Brazil-Peru, were photographed two malocas of isolated Indians. Both were originally located, from the resources of the tool Google Earth, by the sertanista Rieli Franciscato from the "Frente de Proteção Etnoambiental do Javari", in Amazonas, which tried to send the coordinates to her colleague in Acre.

Last year, in a dispatch, we come to this place and saw many traces. We thought that there might be maloca in the region, which was confirmed. One of them is well and confirms the recent migration of isolated indians to Brazil due to pressure from illegal exploitation of timber in the headwaters of the Peruvian River Envira - marks the sertanista.

The Indian women of the group of isolated indians that was photographed had a short skirt of cotton. The men use a tied tape of cotton in which they tie the penis. They shave up to half the hair of the head, but the hair extends until the middle of the back. They use tiaras and appear painted with urucum (red). It draws attention the fact that a few are painted with Jenipapo, that is, with black bodies, but without bow and arrow.

There is more here, but in Portuguese.

This is exactly the sort of character that would be laughed out of ATS, if this UFO metaphor is realistic.

They'd just kill him and eat him, no doubt about it.

More than 100 uncontacted tribes remain worldwide, and about half live in the remote reaches of the Amazonian rainforest in Peru or Brazil, near the recently photographed tribe, according to Survival International, a nonprofit group that advocates for the rights of indigenous people.

"All are in grave danger of being forced off their land, killed or decimated by new diseases," the organization said Thursday.

Illegal logging in Peru is threatening several uncontacted groups, pushing them over the border with Brazil and toward potential conflicts with about 500 uncontacted Indians living on the Brazilian side, Survival International said.
