We wrote about how lost tribes are being found in Africa by using GPS devices and satellites. Now a tribe has been spotted on the border between Brazil and Peru that has NEVER HAD CONTACT with anyone else.

According to BBC News, photographs taken from an airplane flying above the thatched-roof huts of the village show “red-painted tribe members?pointing bows and arrows up at the camera.” The organization Survival International estimates that over half of the world’s 100 uncontacted tribes live in either Brazil or Peru.

BBC quotes the organization’s director Stephen Corry as saying that tribes like this will “soon be made extinct” if their land isn’t protected?mostly from illegal logging and big business interests that want to cut down trees in the dense jungle where they live. This type of drastic land-clearing also promotes global warming.
