The five-foot hole in the middle of his hut is fascinating . Anyone have a take on that ?



I am guessing it is to stay cool from the heat and humidity.

Ahhhhahaaa

Sorry couldn't help myself... that was funny!

The term "Indian" is sometimes used loosely and incorrectly when they are refering to indigenous peoples.

I didn't take offense and I'm Native American.

Wish the government would set aside 31 square miles of land to roam in. I cant even build a treehouse in y backyard without a permit.

The Most Isolated Man on the Planet


He's alone in the Brazilian Amazon, but for how long?


The most isolated man on the planet will spend tonight inside a leafy
palm-thatch hut in the Brazilian Amazon. As always, insects will darn the air.
Spider monkeys will patrol the treetops. Wild pigs will root in the undergrowth.
And the man will remain a quietly anonymous fixture of the landscape,
camouflaged to the point of near invisibility.



He's an Indian, and Brazilian officials have concluded that he's the
last survivor of an uncontacted tribe. In 2007, with ranching and logging
closing in quickly on all sides, government officials declared a 31-square-
mile area around him off-limits to trespassing and development. It's meant
to be a safe zone. He's still in there. Alone.

posters are completely derailing
this thread with a religious bashing.


Religion is almost always interjected in any discussion like this one. The mainstream religious seem unable to tolerate anyone who does not believe as they do. How dare anyone not believe in their god? Christianity is the worst offender. When "lost" tribes or societies are discovered they are immediately slated for "salvation" by missionaries. I can recall being puzzled by a presentation I attended at age ten or eleven at the church my parents belonged to. The missionary was so proud of his and others' accomplishment in converting some indigenous tribe in Papua New Guinea. From his account of it they pretty much hounded these people until they caved. He described the "magic" of modern medicine to them and how it would cure the diseases that the missionaries actually visited on them. Even at that young age I could not understand why these crusaders thought it necessary to destroy a culture that was obviously doing just fine as they were. This lone survivor of whatever tribe/village he was a part of should indeed be left to live out his days as his ancestors did. I do not believe any society has the right to push their beliefs onto anyone else. As far as I'm concerned, all religions have one thing in common. They cannot ALL be right, but they CAN all be wrong.
