Uncontacted Tribe Found in Amazon, June 24 2011

Al Jazeera
Researchers in Brazil say they have found one of the world’s last uncontacted tribes in a remote corner of the Amazon forest.

Aerial pictures revealed by the Brazilian government’s agency of indigenous affairs (Funai) show four large thatched huts fully surrounded by various crops in the Vale do Javari region.

Aloysio Guapindaia, a Funai director, also said they would work to keep the tribe isolated and safe. The tribe is thought to belong to the Pano linguistic group that straddles the border between Brazil, Peru and Bolivia.

Gabriel Elizondo reports from Sao Paulo.
