Tribe Emerges From Brazilian Jungle
Yahoo/GMA ^ | 8/1/2014 | MEGHAN KENEALLY

Posted on 08/01/2014 10:40:50 AM PDT by TangledUpInBlue

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 Thursday 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.

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.

Brazilian authorities have not identified the group, but were able to determine that the dialect of the language that they're speaking is a form of the Panoan linguistic group.

Hmmm... I’m thinking “Why heck. I got modern weapons. I could just kill their men and take the women.”

Butttt, then I thought “No good. They’ll learn English ans try to talk to me “over” the Super Bowl”.

That’ll end badly.

No, they’re better off as ignoramus’

So they walk out of the jungle and immediately start stealing things. Keep this on file for the next time you have to deal with a liberal who thinks the state of nature is bliss, and civilization is the corruption.

I believe it must be a primitive form of early-Obamaites as they just take what they want with a complete sense of entitlement.

They’ve been kept primitive by the “indigenist” movement which does not believe that these people are human beings and should be offered civilization. The Catholic missionaries used to do that, preaching to them and baptizing them and introducing them to more modern ways of life.

Brazil had an odd situation, where something like 60 Portuguese and Spanish Jesuit missionaries on their way to Brazil were captured off the Canary Islands (a watering stop) and forced to walk the plank by French Protestant pirates in the 16th century.

This set missionary activity back enormously and is one of the reasons that Brazil was less Christianized than the rest of Latin America. And now that the left is in charge, these people are supposed to be preserved as you see in exhibits for academic researchers.

At the 4:32 mark....isn’t he holding a RIFLE.

Great, people in lost jungle tribes have more gun rights than people in most American cities.

My one-time boss who was a very intelligent and good looking guy was Jane Pauley's bf in high school. I could NEVER figure out why she married that creep.

That was gonna be the next question. How many of them are GLBT? Once the incorporate in to “modern” society, it won’t be long. They’d have been better off staying in the jungle with no contact.

Yes, stealing from others, after being shown goodwill by the sharing of bananas with them. I suppose Obama would say that it’s not fair that the other villagers didn’t give them all of their weapons and goods.

Kind of silly to argue with a liberal that stealing is wrong. They don't believe in property rights. They'll laugh at you.

As long as they didn't steal it from Mother Gaea, or rape Mother Gaea for it, there's no harm, no foul in their ideology.
