Until they saw this plane, these people had never had contact with the outside world.

Members of an unknown Amazon Basin tribe and their dwellings are seen during a flight over the Brazilian state of Acre along the border with Peru in this May, 2008 photo distributed by FUNAI, the government agency for the protection of indigenous peoples. Survival International estimates that there are over 100 uncontacted tribes worldwide, and says that uncontacted tribes in the region are under increasing threat from illegal logging over the border in Peru. – Yahoo

Oh wow! I was recently chatting with a friend about this story. We thought it was amazing, but were perplexed because our friends did not agree with us. I’m glad to see that others found this story interesting as well.

I know, i had my mouth opened for hours (it seems!?!) then i emailed and called my friends to discuss this news… and discuss what can we do to help them better survive, as we are destroying and bringing illnesses to their ‘world’.
WOW! Truly great story
