New video of a member of a wild tribe living without contact with civilization

Researchers have known about the existence of the Awa people for a long time, but many groups never came out and interacted with civilization because they didn’t want to turn their world upside down. Scientists, from time to time, intend to observe it and protect it from the outside world, thus expanding our knowledge about the wild tribes.

This will not be an easy task, because the massive deforestation of the Amazon is proceeding ever faster. Soon such tribes will have nowhere to hide. It is because of the devastating economy that the natives want nothing to do with the rest of humanity and are trying as much as they can to separate themselves from us and live as their ancestors have done for centuries.

“They have never had contact with anyone. We know nothing about the language they speak, but if we learn it, they will have problems” . “They are aware of our world, but they know very little about it and don’t want to know too much. It is enough for them to see what we do with nature” – Jose Carlos Meirelles, an expert on indigenous peoples in Brazil, noted.

The natives go about their daily business of growing bananas, sweet potatoes, peanuts or fishing. The man captured on film is from a tribe that is unknown to scientists. His observations have shown that he is currently living on his own. Representatives of the Brazilian National Foundation for the Environment. The Federation of American Indians (FUNAI) is preparing a large census of wild tribes living in the Amazon.

The organization Survival International collected and analyzed data from aerial photos, travelers and representatives of the discovered tribes and estimated that in the tropical zone of the entire planet may live 300 more undiscovered nomadic groups.

According to the organization, most of these tribes have some knowledge of the outside world because they are in constant contact with other peoples and thus exchange information, but despite this fact they live their lives until the first contact. Their isolation is mainly due to bad experiences and not very nice information about outsiders.

It is estimated that all wild tribes will be discovered within the next 20 years, as increasingly the protected areas in which these peoples are found are being extensively explored by gold prospectors, oil companies, rubber exploration companies, miners, poachers and ordinary farmers.

Survival International, based on knowledge from interviews with members of the discovered tribes, points out that most of them, once they have contact with the outside world, no longer want to return to their previous way of life.
