national geographic


May 30, 2008—In a palm-hut encampment, members of an
"uncontacted" Amazon tribe fire arrows at an airplane above the rain
forest borderlands of Peru and Brazil
earlier this month. The black and red dyes covering their bodies are
made from crushed seeds and are believed to signal aggression,
native-rights experts say.

Released yesterday, the photo—one of several—was taken by officials from Brazil's National Indian Foundation (FUNAI).






Peruvian officials and energy interests have publicly expressed doubt that uncontacted tribes exist in the Amazon. (See "Oil Exploration in Amazon Threatens 'Unseen' Tribes" [March 21, 2008].)

But the new photos are more proof that uncontacted, seminomadic
tribes do exist in the increasingly threatened Amazon rain forest,
according to Survival International, an international indigenous-rights
group that works closely with FUNAI.
"We are very confident the photos are genuine," said Miriam
Ross, a spokesperson for Survival International, which estimates that
half of the hundred or so uncontacted tribes in the world live in the
rain forests of Brazil and Peru.
Some experts say few, if any, tribes have had no outside
contact. It's more likely that previous generations had negative
encounters, prompting social taboos that continue to drive clans deeper
into isolation.
Due to their vulnerable immune systems, these groups are highly
susceptible to diseases borne by outsiders such as missionaries,
loggers, or oil workers.
The new photos come just months after a similar one (see photo)
captured apparently uncontacted natives collecting turtle eggs by a
riverbank in the Peruvian Amazon, where energy development and illegal
logging are on the rise.

J'avais entendu ca.. assez spécial pareil Smile
Vraiment la.. wow.
Jtrouve ca toujours difficile a imaginer pareil.. de 1 la taille de l'amazone.. de deux.. ca fait réaliser qu'on a crissement pas découvert toute la planete. (ce qui est pas négatif en sois. )
(je suis fascinée par les fonds fonds fonds sous marins ces temps ci)

mais la jai comme un gros gros doute qu'ils vont pouvoir rester "isolés".
msemble qu'il y a tellement de caves sur la terre.. C'est clair que au moins une personne est maintenant déterminée a les contacter.
watch out le nouveau show de téléréalité.
"Qui peut vivre dans une tribue isolée du monde".

Le pire Rach c'est qu'il y en a déjà...

pas avec cette tribu là en particulier, mais j'avais lu de quoi il y a quelques mois concernant une équipe de tournage britannique qui est allée filmer dans une tribu qui avait jamais eu de contact avec la 'civilisation'...

bref, à cause qu'ils n'étaient pas immunisé contre nos microbes, il y a quelques membres de la tribu qui sont morts de la grippe suite à la visite du camera crew... c'est bad.
