The BBC’s In Pictures site today has some interesting photos of members one of Brazil’s uncontacted indigenous tribes, who live in a protected part of the Amazon.
Well, they aren’t “uncontacted” any more. When the aircraft with the photographers flew over, all the women and children fled and the men covered their bodies in warpaint and took up arms.
See here for an analysis of what the pictures tell us of the tribe.
I think I feel a bit bad for those people. Their lives have been intruded upon and you’d think it’s likely they will become exploited in some way now.
