It’s hard to imagine that there are still people on this Earth who are isolated from modern society… but there are. It’s thought that there are just hundreds of “uncontacted peoples” left in the world, living in rain forests or on remote islands. Just recently, a government airplane was flying over the Amazon basin in Brazil when researchers on board spotted this uncontacted tribe. The local government doesn’t encroach on their lives, but monitors their activity because loggers and others are expanding and hoping to ultimately take over this “untouched” land. Upon seeing an airplane, this was their reaction.
When they spotted the plane, the tribesman seem genuinely startled.
They stared at the sky, shaking their spears.
It’s almost surreal to see such a reaction to modern technology in 2014.
The fact that there are people in the world who are so isolated is incredible.
This tribe, which lives in Brazil’s Acre State, grows crops, peanuts, bananas, corns and more.
There are approximately 200 members of this uncontacted tribe in particular. Even though they know nothing of our modern lives or technology, these people have made a home for themselves in the forests. They live off of the earth, have built straw-roofed huts for themselves and have formed a small society. Source: Daily Mail The Brazilian government is continuously trying to protect them, but they’re still at risk of eventually being overrun by loggers and companies trying to turn a profit by expanding deep into the Amazon forest. It’s truly amazing, but it’s also heartbreaking that they haven’t been left alone to live their normal lives. Share this incredible story by clicking below.
