Rare uncontacted Amazonian tribe photographed

29May08

Yahoo! has a slideshow presenting aerial photos of an Amazon tribe that has not had contact with the outside world. In the smallish images, you can see the hostility from seeing aircraft as they branish their bow and arrows.

It’s quite astonishing to me that given how fast the world is shrinking from exploration and technology, there are still parts that are unvisited.

The irony is that now that they’ve been photographed and have seen the aircraft, I guess that’s one less tribe that is uncontacted.

Update: My wife informs me that no contact has actually been established simply from visual sighting alone, and that their status of being uncontacted has not been violated. OK then.
