First ever aerial footage from uncontacted Amazon Tribe

There are, around the World, more than 100 uncontacted tribes. Most of them live in South America or in Papua New Guinea.
Some of them see today their existing threatening by the deforestation and the development of industrial activities.

The anthropologist José Carlos Morales fought for the recognition of the right to exist to some of these tribes living in South America. Located in the heart of the Amazon forest, – an area rich in resources – it is easier for some Governments to deny the existence of these tribes and then harvest their lands for their profits, even if this endangers the life of the local tribes.

Protecting these tribes, fully-fledged member of the humankind, without destabilizing their lifestyle is a real challenge.
The aerial footage could provide significant evidence of the existence of these tribes, without interfering with their life.

The video below is the first ever aerial footage of an Amazonian Indian tribe.

The organization Survival International is a global movement fighting for the recognition of tribal peoples’ right. Don’t hesitate to have a look at their website.

    I visited Ecuador and while there I had the opportunity to learn about the uncontacted tribes. I’ve always wondered living in a world without man-made items, technology, and social constraints. It seems fascinating. I hope that, although I’m curious, their lifestyle remains as they want.

    I saw this video some time ago. It is amazing that there are still some people that are virtually un contacted. Hopefully the countries that maintain jurisdiction over the various areas can manage to keep them living the way they want.
