    Not exactly a newly discovered race or tribe but interesting none the less.

    If they havent seen a plane before what the hell must they be thinking? It boggles the mind!

    I kind of sucks that they couldn't just leave them be. As you say, what must they be thinking. No doubt they're highly superstitious/spiritual, they probably think the plane has been sent by the "gods" and symbolises their impending doom if they don't sacrifice several small children.

    The Brazilian government do let them be, thats why they remain 'uncontacted' however they did this fly over to prove they exist to try and stop further logging in the area.

    Apparently there are around 100 known tribes in the Amazon that still remain 'uncontacted'.

    ^ Perhaps a necessary evil then. Hope it works.

    Too late. They've seen the plane. They'll be wearing Nike tshirts and flip flops by next week. iPhone will be out on June 9th on the Amazon Apple Store.

    Wow. It's hard to imagine that that sort of thing exists in a world like this.

    its good that the Brazilian government "let them be" i would be terrible if they got documented by modern humans and sold as a 'freak show'. they would probably get very depressed.

    its very scary to see people are still so primitive that they get scared of the modern world. this is very interesting.

    They'll hate the Western world. Just give us 30 years and they'll all be alcoholics and forget their own culture.

    Wonder if any of these tribes can be seen in forest clearings in Google Earth?

    Nah, next time we fly over, one of them will have become the Roman Tribe, one will have become the 1920s Gangster Tribe and one will have become the Nazi Tribe.

    mind-boggling at times. terribly sad that we're destroying people's lives and the world at the same time by logging.

    The people who do illegal logging obviously don't care if animals get hurt. The same people will probably just assume these people are no better than animals and continue their illegal ways.
