Tribe Emerges From Brazilian Jungle Possibly for First Time
ABC News ^ | 7/31/2014 | Peru

Posted on 08/01/2014 1:23:36 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A remarkable video shows a group of indigenous people seen for the first time by the outside world as they emerged from a Brazilian jungle while fleeing illegal loggers and drug traffickers, according a Brazilian group that tracks such jungle tribes.

The group of men are believed to be natives of Peru but they were filmed in northern Brazil on the banks of the Envira River which runs near the Peruvian border. The encounter took place within the last two weeks, but the video was released today by the Brazilian indigenous authority FUNAI.

The tribal men are naked except for belts and loincloths and carry different weapons, including bows and arrows and spears in the 8-minute video.

A few of the tribal men are seen with markings on their faces and they all have styled their dark black hair in a similar bowl-cut fashion.

Great ‘toon.

I suspect that the tribe “emerging” from the jungle simply had all the trees around them cut down, revealing their existence. Sad, really.

They should turn around and run back into the jungle.

First time huh? And they can communicate with “outsiders” perfectly? I don’t buy it.

“At one point one of the men blatantly steals a machete-type knife while another takes an ax from a settlement, despite shouts of protest by the villagers. Another member of their group grabs a blue material that looks like either a towel or a piece of clothing.”

If you watch the video, this takes place after someone gave the young men two big bunches of bananas as a goodwill gesture. Nice way to repay the kindness.

***”They weren’t an unknown group. People have known about them for years,” Spooner said. She said the Brazilian government has been monitoring the movements of the group, which she described as nomadic hunter gatherers.***

Just watched the video and I don't buy it either. Someone knew enough of their language to keep talking to them. One of them had a rifle, possibly an airgun, but definitely not carved from a jungle vine. They have had more than a little experience with the "outside world."

Too bad the cameraman was on an Ayahuasca trip.

And at 4:32 in the video, one of them has a RIFLE.

That’s what the Left wants those of us that remain to live like.
