Uncontacted Indian tribe found in Brazil's Amazon

Recommended Posts

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil: An Indian tribe that has had no formal contact with Western civilization has been located in a remote Amazon region, federal authorities said Friday.

The Metyktire tribe, with about 87 members, was found last week in an area that is difficult to reach because of thick jungle and a lack of nearby rivers some 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles) northwest of Rio de Janeiro, said Mario Moura, a spokesman for the Federal Indian Bureau, or Funai.

A couple weeks ago, I went to a fundraiser and met DR. MARK PLOTKIN, an ethno-botanist and founder of the Amazon Conservation Teammet. He brought along Indian Shahman (DON LUCIANO MUTUMBAJOY) from the Ingano tribe in the Northwest Amazon. Dr. Plotkin is uniting the tribes so that the government and private interests don't take their forests. Plotkin said 20-25% of global warming is caused by the burning of the Amazon!

"Moura said anthropologists no longer attempt to contact those groups, but instead demarcate the land and wait for them to make contact."

Real nice. :( Just put up a boundary and wait for someone to walk into it.

People suck sometimes.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
