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.



It's all about the Normans. They built the best stuff around. (Cathedrals, stone castles etc).


But yeah, Brazil doesn't seem to have the resources to handle this kind of problem with their massive land mass.

African? Geography much?

And what idiot starred you? Did you two come here together?

They couldn't be so lucky as to be African....

South America holds the remainder of the very few RED MAN tribes left on the entire planet....

Soon, they'll be exterminated...

Sad indeed..

Does anyone find it funny when people post uninformed rubbish? Sorry mate but a statement like that is just asking for it.

Sorry OP, great thread by the way, I've often wondered about these tribes. I saw a documentary recently where they filmed them from a distance and they all seem to be done up in red war paint, seems SOOOOO interesting. Thanks for posting mate!

I am 1000 % for truebrits perspective.

We in fact would still be tribes and clans, if "progress" didnt come and steal our cultures and resources and people, and leave them with a hole to fall into once progress destroyed itself on its own greed.

send me back to my people, we were "primitive", but is this society the way it should be?

i want back to the old ways, all day.

Perhaps it's natural for some of these tribes to move around occasionally so they don't destroy the ecological balance of the rain forest.

.. just sayin

Really?


They spotted the tribe from a helicopter and took photographs of them. Once they knew where they were, they set up a guard post to prevent people from physically contacting them either by accident or intentionally. They never did publicize their location. Recently the guardpost was overrun by what appear to be members of a drug gang. Authorities overflew the area and there was no sign of the 200+ members of the tribe. They've since gone in on foot deeming that concerns about physical contact were secondary to making sure they were safe. They have been unable to locate any of them. They may have been kidnapped, or dispersed, or maybe they're in hiding. But right now they don't know.

You seem to be surprised that people are having such a strong reaction to this, but the reason is simple. This tribe represented a tiny minority of people who still lived in harmony with nature like all of mankind did at one time. They've been unaffected by "progress". To see them wiped out by a bunch of drug-running thugs is truly heart-breaking.

I wouldn't write these guys off so quickly, everyone. The jungle is their home and their life in a way I can never understand and I'll bet the drug runners are equally ignorant. If these folks vanished, I'll bet you anything, THEY VANISHED. Drug Cartels would leave something rather gruesome for the helicopters to see next and spread the message/example for others to learn from.

Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I'd like to think the lack of contact FROM Westerners doesn't mean these people are simple minded or stupid and they are likely very aware OF Westerners. How couldn't they be sitting in no mans land during the 3rd or 4th guerrilla war that region has seen in the last 100 years?

I'm going to assume they did what only they can likely do around that specific part of our little planet, and just vanished into the Jungle until the outsiders looking for them have moved on and left.

Really?


What the hell are you talking about?

I think the title says it all

Amazon tribe pictured for first time earlier this year 'missing' after attack by armed drug traffickers

Machine gun-wielding gang overpowered guards stationed to protect tribe


But have some more of the obvious


According to tribal advocacy group Survival International, police found a package containing 44lbs of coc aine in the area.

That could mean that the Envira River, where the Brazilian guard post was located, is now an entry point into Brazil for Peruvian coc aine smugglers.

This story makes me smile in a way....
because...

just because you can't find them doesn't mean they're not there! They probably took off deliberately, and it could very well be that the helicopter "welfare checks" were seen by them as frightening and intrusive. And then the guards posted....and then the drug-runners....

Just freaking LEAVE THEM ALONE!!

"Modern" societies are sick, every damned one of them. Every one.

I was just thinking if there was a place I could go that was not a sick society i would go there. I wish I could find this tribe myself and ask them to take me in.

I'm so sickened, to my core, by the atrocities done by humans to each other and to animals and the planet.
I wish them well, and I envy them their solitude and freedom.

The "civilized" countries of the world should STOP butting into other people's business.
Sigh.

That was my first reaction to reading the OP.

As for what happened to the tribe, I'm sure they weren't killed... What would a drug cartel have to gain from killing these people? The ammunition it would take would be worth a lot more than anything they could steal from an uncontacted tribe. I would assume they just raided the guard post for any supplies or weapons and the tribe got scared and ran off.

You are most likely right, but without this war on drugs the raid would have never happened. as there would be no need to seek a route to traffic the coke

Blame it on the media for revealing their existence in the first place. "Oh look, Civilised World, a previously undiscovered tribe living right here (Google Earth zoom). Seems they defend themselves with primitive bows and arrows. They may have hoards of emeralds and gold that they use in rituals. The women of the tribe are really attractive... the huts they live in look quite flammable... let's hope that no drug lords or human traffickers find out about them as their stick weapons will be no match for guns and machetes"

This happened years ago that they found this tribe, right? Like, back in 2007?

And they did find evidence that at least some of the tribes people were still out there, some time later.

Please tell me I'm not tripping out here.
