Amazing undiscovered tribes



These are thought to be the very first pictures of a previously undiscovered tribe in the Amazon Jungle. How amazing is it that there are still cultures like this surviving in the world? In the first picture, tribesmen are attempting to shoot down the helicopter with arrows (bless their little cotton socks) (well, if they had them).
It is estimated that there up up to 100 undiscovered peoples like this throughout Africa and South America. And here we sit, sipping our lattes, checking Facebook and living our technological lives.
Is it us, that don't know what we're missing, or them?

4 kindred spirits ~ This bugs them too!:

Hi *a*, I couldn't find the original story I read, which was just on news.com.au, but they've still got the gallery I got these from at the gallery section, and the original pictures were taken for Survival International, and they have the story here
