I see that the Russians were able to harness the sun through candle technology. How remote are these tribes when a camera man is there to photograph them? I’m really not trying to give you the business about these tribes but these pictures remind me of photos of mountain climbers reaching the summit of some mountain. I always thought to myself, “Well, it looks like the photographer got there before the explorer did.” Anyway, these are fascinating pictures of people who most likely just want to be left alone. I hope the world will let them be.

Gauchos, Argentina???? The Gauchos are Argentine cowboys of mixed European and Native South American heritage. They ride horses, that were introduced to the America’s by Europeans. They are a profession, not a Tribe.

Many of those tribes have long since “Passed away” meaning they’ve moved into the modern world.

A watched a show a while back about these “primitives” like the Mongolian nomads. Many are still nomadic but far from backwards. They carry satellite phones, keep in contact by way of the internet etc. A lot of African tribes make a pretty good living by playing the role of their ancestors. They live in modern homes with many of the same conveniences we have but keep a traditional village where they punch a time clock and show tourists how they lived a generation or two back.

Progress is good.

I am always arguing with leftists on this. They usually translate info like this into, oh, evil white people came and killed and destroyed these folk.

What really happened is they got tired of banging rocks together out in the wild to eat and die and were smart enough to say, hey prosperity, I’d like some of that too.

They come out of the sticks and into civilization and intermarry. And drive cars and buy houses like everyone else.

I’m not sure why the author thinks these tribes are disappearing.. while nice photos, there is no context offered that these tribes are being integrated into modern society or suffering birth rate drops etc... in fact I suspect that should some world wide catastrophic event occur folks like these will be the most likely to survive.

I read where the original were gauchos were deported European Jews who were enslaved to take care of the cattle on the Pampas. Eventually they made own their own communities, intermarried and rustled all the cows and broke free.

Here's the video link. There is an interesting video this guy made. The beginning trailer is a little overhyped (Exhilarating! Unbelievable! Awesome!) but the following video is how these great photos were made.

I believe that deep in the remotest, darkest jungles of Massachusetts there’s a small tribe of conservatives still holding out. It’d be nice to get some pix but we wouldn’t want to let anyone know they’re there.

In the early days of the 20th century, Alberto Gerchunoff was the first Jewish immigrant author in Argentina who wrote in the local language, Spanish, instead of Yiddish. His philosophy was about integration, while maintaining the Jewish heritage.

Judging from the number of rifles in the picture, I’d guess those guys in Banna can take care of themselves.

I wonder how some of those Asian tribes managed to hold onto their lifestyles throughout the Soviet era. Even the Mongolians, how is it they’re left alone by the Chicoms? I thought they were all rounded up and forced to integrate. But if they were able to stay a step ahead of the commies I’m thinking it might be time to invest in a yurt.

The Soviet regime used the same phony diversity crap in its propaganda, and of course divided the USSR along ethnic lines for administrative purposes. Also, some of those areas are so remote that there’s not much need for or economic justification for much of a gov’t presence.
