Uncontacted Amazonian Tribe Missing.


www.dailyma il.co.uk

One of the world's last uncontacted tribes has gone missing after drug traffickers overran Brazilian guards posted to protect its lands.

No trace of the Indian tribe has been found after heavily armed men destroyed a guard post in western Brazil around 32 miles from the Peruvian border.

Probably some of the worst news. Nothing can stay the same in this world
Hopefully they are still alive. Something tells me they would be pretty smart in the jungle, and could get away in a few seconds. (you would hope)
Im suprised theres even any jungle left over there tho.

QUOTE:
"The tribe made headlines earlier this year after they were pictured from a helicopter, daubed in red paint, standing among their huts in the dense rainforest.

Their compound included thatched dwellings and gardens full of manioc tubers and papaya, as well as covered stores for fruit and meat.

Like other uncontacted tribes, they live a traditional life in the forest and do not have any contact with the outside world.

As many as 2,000 Indians may live in the Juvari Valley, in the western Amazon, according to estimates."

Already been posted on Above Top Secret

I agree - it's definitely sad to hear. I hope they just packed up and "went missing". They have survived this long, I hope they can continue to survive

Its fine if there are two of the same topic on ATS as long as they are in different forums, which they are. The more who read this the better in my opinion.

My heart sank when I read your headline. I hope they are savvy enough to be able to evade them.

How can they be missing if they have been uncontacted?
Really?

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it fall can it be heard?

How SAD! I hope they are still alive! This makes me sick!

It's amazing that there are still tribes in this world who have no contact with the outside world. Sometimes I feel envious of them at the rate things are going in this world.

My point being...

There is no human beings that have not been in contact with modern civilization. You can argue the point, but we have spread so far that this idea that "no contact" is complete bull#.

Thank you for posting this news OP.

They may have escaped to a place a safety. They have lived in the forest for untold hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. They surely have a place of safety and refuge when their tribe is under threat.

I wish them well.

The last bastion of hope for some, so it seems. Have you lost all hope for the common man as to hope that the common man is not worthy of redemption?

Why does the contact with these people cause you pain/grief?

I see you were hopping for a miracle, well it probably will not happen with these folks.

This is just awful. I really hate to hear about stuff like this. I hope that they were able to get away somehow. Can we just go ahead and put a plastic coating around the entire Earth already?

"Drug-Traffickers Mysteriously Found with Throats Cut"

Wouldn't that be a great follow-up headline?


ETA: Oh it's those guys! I hadn't looked at the link. These were a hoax iirc. Not uncontacted at all and had posed for the shots.

Does anybody find it funny that 2000 Years ago, ROME was built. Yet all this time later, the African natives still dwell in stick huts?

Rome? Rome was a despotic cess pool, that gutted and bastardised the culture of huge portions of Europe , Africa, and the like. Romans can go suck a blasting cap.

I would PREFER being dressed in animal skins, and living in roundhouses and ancient style huts, hunting where I please, farming what land I can muster up, and having no lord and master but the cheiftan of my village. I would PREFER to live by the speed of my wit, and the strength of my sword arm, and the solidarity of my shield arm.

Romans killed all our mystics, our druids, they killed and enslaved our men and women, and destroyed our culture.

Rome ended all that for Britain by inserting bloody over rated civilisation into our paradigm, which , like a cancer spread to all corners of Britain, and has prevented the common man defending himself against injustice from his fellow man, and his government alike.

Rome = Decay , dirt, disgust, and the total devestation of our ancient past. I say I could have lived without it, and I reckon the tribes of africa could live without that as well.

Did you even read the article?

These tribes, and possibel up to 100 more, have never been in any physical, face to face contact with westerners. This is a policy started in 1987 (Or was it 97?) becasue it was found that diseases which we are immune to were killing up to 50% of contacted villigers as they had no natural defenses against these foreign pathogens.

There are many tribes which gave never been conatacted for this, and other anthropological reasons.

If you are allone in the forrest and you say something and there is no one arround to hear, are you still wrong? Yes, I think so!

Isn't it funny that they have remained in their space and had no negative impact on the world while our own governments are destroying the place not to mention the money hungry power behind the scenes.
