Greetings astute traveller, this website now exists for historical reasons.

Much has been learned since 2006. I urge you to keep exploring the evolution of information through other websites.

Uncontacted Tribes
« on: June 01, 2008, 12:38:11 AM »
From the website:
Over one hundred tribes around the world choose to reject contact with outsiders. They are the most vulnerable peoples on the planet.

Many of them are living on the run, fleeing invasions of their land by colonists, loggers, oil crews and cattle ranchers. They have often seen their friends and families die at the hands of outsiders, in unreported massacres or epidemics.

Website: http://www.survival-international.org/campaigns/uncontactedtribes

Below are some photos...


The lost tribe lives in dense jungle near the border between Brazil and Peru.


The fly-by was believed to be the tribe's first contact with the outside world and the first proof they exist.


The tribesmen could be seen trying to fire their arrows at the helicopter as it hovered overhead.


Many of the tribesmen were painted bright red while others appeared with a much darker pigment.


The tribe lives in a collection of huts with thick, thatched roofs in the heart of the Amazon.


But advocates say their survival is threatened by rapacious logging in the Amazon forest.


Survival International says there are up to 100 tribes living uncontacted by the modern world. More than half live in this area.

There are still some uncontacted tribes out there. Just not that particular one.

And I have a feeling that Earth is one of the uncontacted tribes of the universe.
Guys like me aren't born this way, actually we're not born at all. We're hatched from vulture eggs left in the sun, then raised by Wolves...
