Who" lost" those tribes?
Was it typical civilization?
Or does the trible know quite well that civilization is "out there," and that they are surrounded but, they chose to live as they do except for a
bit of trade now and then for simple goods--no laptops--just maybe a shotgun and cartridges now and then.
At any rate, they will rue the day they were "discovered" as researchers and missionaries flock to "help" and know them.
I recommend a good book about a missionary that lived with his youngsters for several years with a "lost tribe" in the Amazon. The title: "Don't
sleep, There Be Snakes." (That was their way of saying "Goodnight."
The missionary learned so much from the little trible that he eventually give up his religion as he saw through the framework (matrix?) that is
accepted in the "civilized" world today.
It is a mind expanding book, a primer for how we will have to individually struggle with our understanding of more distant alien cultures when that
time comes....and it is coming.
