Deep in the Amazon jungle, one of the Brazil's last uncontacted indigenous tribes has been photographed from the air, to prove its existence.

The pictures show tribesmen, painted red from head to toe, preparing to defend themselves with longbows against the aircraft carrying out the photography.

The images, taken by the Brazil's department for Indian affairs (Funai), reveal a number of thatched roof huts in a small clearing in the forest, in the western Amazon, close to Envira, which is not far from the border with Peru.

Funai warned that logging in the region threatened the existence of the few remaining uncontacted indigenous communities.

"We did the overflight to show their houses, to show they are there, to show they exist," said Jose Carlos dos Reis Meirelles, an expert on uncontacted tribes at Funai. "This is very important because there are some who doubt their existence."

Meirelles said the tribe lived in six small communities, each with about six communal houses, in an area known as the Terra Indigena Kampa e Isolados do Envira.

He added that other uncontacted groups on the Peruvian side of the border, who have also been photographed by experts, were being pushed from their homes by illegal logging.

"What is happening in this region [of Peru] is a monumental crime against the natural world, the tribes, the fauna, and is further testimony to the complete irrationality with which we, the civilised ones, treat the world," Meirelles said.

Loggers, often prepared to kill as they move into new areas, have forced uncontacted tribes from Peru into Brazil. The area is regularly full of smoke from the burning of recently-logged areas.

The Brazilian government has a policy of not contacting the few tribes which are untouched by the outside world and whose way of life has apparently changed little in thousands of years. It is not known to which tribe they belonged, Funai said.

Maybe they'll be peaceful and docile, like the Malumbos. We can teach them to play basketball...

The layout of the village is...unusual. Did anyone see that?

If it were my call, I would leave these folks alone until they asked for mail service and Internet.
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

the black one makes the babies.

pretty cool though. will watch this one play out.

remember when the phillipine president marcos had a fake tribe created to get tourism going there? This was in the early 80's late 70's.

It is pretty unusual to have a zero contact tribe out there though.

If it's for real, you think they're still a bit freaked?

they'll have to send people with body armor to avoid the embarrassment of being killed by stone age weapons. lol
which in turn will really fuck with their heads because now, the discoveres not only come from teh sky, but they are also invulnerable!

+Brazil's official government policy is to not interfere with undiscovered indigenous peoples. However, it's the loggers and poachers who have even more effect on them. Btw, most people believe that these tribes know about modern civilization; they just run away from it. They probably eat some of those people who are unfortunate enough to discover them.

Ok, there's a film about this called "How Tasty Was My Little Frenchman." But, you can also google "the anthropophagist manifesto." :)

That's so awesome, that there are still "untouched" tribes like that left in the world. 8-)
