One of the last un-contacted tribes

The pictures are amazing. This reminds me of the first encounter rules in Star Trek.

Do you think will ever contact them?

I think they should drop down a few Ipod's, a laptop with WiFi and come back in 2 weeks.

Has anyone seen the movie "The End of the Spear"? If not, try to rent it - its a real eye opener in primitive tribes - very similar reactions to this tribe. And be sure to watch the ending parts on the credits BTW the tribe in Spear is also from South America and one of the worse in violence - its pretty violent at the beginning!

That would be a very bad place to have an engine failure.

My opinion is that we should just LEAVE THEM ALONE.

We've already freaked them out with the giant scary killer birds in the sky. Why can't we leave them alone to let them continue to live in peace?

Oh, that's right, I forgot. THey are "savages" so we'll just HAVE to send in some missionaries to show them "THE WAY."

I feel really bad for that tribe now that their peace and privacy has been disturbed by "progress."

I think that now the tribe has received this widespread attention, that there will be no way for them to be left alone. It would be nice if people could leave them alone, but someone is going to ruin things and contact them.

I agree, leave them alone.

But the Brazilians need their land so they can cut down the trees and export to the U.S. lumber for houses and furniture and wood pulp for tissues, toilet paper, and baby diapers.

that's a sardonic eye roll

That isn't true.

I used to work for a major company in the paper industry. I think I should know where a goodly portion of their wood pulp comes from.

I would think that the raw materials for biofuel play a bigger role nowadays.

They use their own domestically grown sugar, which is farmed of course, and not wild-harvested. In fact, they grow so much that they could easily export to the U.S. for our gasohol production if the U.S. didn't protect our domestic sugar farmers with artificial price supports. And sugar is a much better source than corn.

While I agree we should leave them alone, I didn't read anywhere in the article about sending in missionaries, did you read something I didn't?

Funny, in the photograph, they didn't seem to be at all afraid of the aircraft taking the pictures.

They looked more like "come down here so we can thump on yer head"!
post #18 of 23
Ya, for sure. They photographer was probably flying in a light single-engine, so it's conceivable a good shot with an arrow could be mighty bad news.

I'm all for leaving them alone as well. We should let them live their lives, and have no contact with them what so ever.
post #20 of 23
All contacting them would achieve is to bring our diseases to them and kill them all off.

It was pure sarcasm on my part. I thought that was obvious, my mistake.

All we would do is ruin their life, make them sick, and eventually destroy them.
