Uncontacted Tribe Photographed in Amazon

Amazing photos on CNN.com of a previously ‘uncontacted tribe’ in Brazil:

‘Researchers have produced aerial photos of jungle dwellers who they say are among the few remaining peoples on Earth who have had no contact with the outside world.

‘Taken from a small airplane, the photos show men outside thatched communal huts, necks craned upward, pointing bows toward the air in a remote corner of the Amazonian rainforest.

‘The National Indian Foundation, a government agency in Brazil, published the photos Thursday on its Web site. It tracks ‘uncontacted tribes’ — indigenous groups that are thought to have had no contact with outsiders — and seeks to protect them from encroachment.’
