    Uncontacted Amazon tribe found

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24880941/
    RIO DE JANEIRO - Amazon Indians from one of the world's last uncontacted tribes have been photographed from the air, with striking images released on Thursday showing them painted bright red and brandishing bows and arrows.

    The photographs of the tribe near the border between Brazil and Peru are rare evidence that such groups exist. A Brazilian official involved in the expedition said many of them are in increasing danger from illegal logging.

    "What is happening in this region is a monumental crime against the natural world, the tribes, the fauna and is further testimony to the complete irrationality with which we, the 'civilized' ones, treat the world," Jose Carlos Meirelles was quoted as saying in a statement by the Survival International group.
    Yay! More people to exploit!

    Of more than 100 uncontacted tribes worldwide, more than half live in either Brazil or Peru, Survival International says. It says all are in grave danger of being forced off their land, killed and ravaged by new diseases.

    I can't wait to make them as miserable as the rest of us. They can even make me their god of pesimism.

    Yes. Just change the bows for guns, make them look caucasian, and make the helicopter into an alien spaceship, and you've got the same situation as above.

    Only if their leader is named George W. Bush. We all need some good tribal scandals that we already knew about.

    Re: Uncontacted Amazon tribe found

    The story is more "uncontacted amazon tribe photographed" than found - we know where they are, they just don't know who the fuck we are.

    The fact that they respond to airplanes by pointing bows and arrows at the sky is fucking awesome though.

    Also, the photos look like a cool new RTS game kinda. I just wanna click those little red dudes with my mouse and see what they say.

    Someone should send a letter to each of the 100 tribes so there'll be no more uncontacted tribes anymore.

    It's also curious that each of those isolated tribes seem to be at similar technology levels. You'd think that, in isolation, some would be more advanced than others. There's nothing stopping that particular tribe from having an industrial revolution separate from the rest of us.

    They're not having industrial revolutions because they're darkies and therefore don't have the capacity. Just ask Watson.

    They're too isolated from the outside world. No trade = slowed/no advancement. All they have is what the jungles have, which is enough to stay alive, build some basic weapons, and eat.

    I know it's so wrong, but those pictures reminded me of this movie.

    Well there's the whole recognition of individual rights, as opposed to squatting rights.
