Feb 1 - Never Before Seen Amazon Tribe Photographed for the First Time

These people are part of an unknown and uncontacted Amazon tribe living in the jungle. Look at their faces arching towards the sky in wonderment, it's so...completely refreshing. Can you imagine what they're thinking about?

I can't even try to imagine their situation but I'm almost jealous of them. Their complete use of the land, building houses with palm frond roofs. Their rituals, painting their body red with annatto shrub seeds. Their world, honoring their ancestors just by living like them. It's simple, and maybe at times inconvenient, but it's also peaceful and natural. Sure, maybe they're not advancing but they live.

What are they thinking about as the overhead plane flies past them? It doesn't look like they're hostile, other pictures of uncontacted tribes show bow & arrows pointed directly at the plane. This picture catches them stunned, mouth agape, curiously pointing. Like you caught them acting, only they're not acting. I can't quite explain it, it's not exactly confusion on their faces but rather an interrupted moment mixed with a little bit of incredulity. So very amazing, nonetheless.

The pictures were taken with an overhead plane in an attempt to stop illegal logging in Peru. Kinda odd that tribal advocacy groups had to invade these tribes' privacy to protect their privacy but the groups justified it by saying:

"[It's] necessary to reaffirm that these peoples exist, so we support the use of images that prove these facts. These peoples have had their most fundamental rights, particularly their right to life, ignored … it is therefore crucial that we protect them."

Hopefully, they get protected. They look healthy and happy and that should never change. [Uncontacted Tribes via Wired]

Update: Some of you may have recognized a similar story in 2008 which was wrongfully called a hoax. It wasn't. Various publications apologized for calling it a hoax and retracted their posts. These new pictures (and additional footage) will also be featured in an upcoming episode of Human Planet, called 'Jungles', on BBC.

Sorry, but the glow from your white skin would attract predators and then you'd become lunch for a large cat etc...

Actually, I think you'd run into Black people there too. Maybe you should stick to Kansas.
