Revealed: Meet The Hidden Amazonian Tribes Who Have No Contact With The Outside World

The hidden Amazonian tribes who have no contact with the outside world, have been revealed as photos emerge.
Amazonian tribes are at risk of being chased off their land
 
The incredible lives of uncontested Amazonian tribes that have had little to no communication with the outside world can be revealed by Daily Star Online.
 
Despite popular opinion so-called uncontacted tribes do have relations with neighbouring groups or tribes – whether they are friendly or not. 
 
They are, however, considered to be people who have no peaceful contact with anyone in mainstream society. 
 
Survival International, a group that aims to protect the rights of tribal people, estimates there are about 100 uncontacted tribes across the globe. 
 
Many groups who live in isolation from larger society carve out an existence in hunter-gatherers or bartering communities. 
 
They live in communal groups that rely heavily on the rainforest where they hunt, fish and harvest food. 
 
Uncontacted tribes gained global attention in 2008 after Brazilian officials released photos of tribespeople firing arrows at a low-flying plane. 
 
It was astonishing proof that these people had created a society that had no need of outside interference.

Some uncontested tribes, like the Kawahiva, lived life on the run from Brazilian loggers who destroyed their homes to cultivate farmland. 
 
Jessica Franklin, a spokeswoman for Survival International, told Daily Star Online the organisation was fighting to “stop the extermination” of the tribes.
 
She added: “Uncontacted tribes aren’t primitive relics of a remote past. They live here and now. 

“They are our contemporaries and a vital part of humankind’s diversity. We know very little about them but we do know they have vast botanical and zoological knowledge and a unique understanding of sustainable living. 

“There is irrefutable evidence that their tribal territories are the best barrier to deforestation, particularly in the Amazon rainforest.” 
 
But many dangers remain in the rainforests, which leave many of the tribespeople at risk. 
 
Ms Franklin added: “Uncontacted tribes are the most vulnerable peoples on the planet. 

“Whole populations are being wiped out by violence from outsiders who steal their land and resources, and by diseases like the flu and measles to which they have no resistance.

“Uncontacted tribes face catastrophe unless their land is protected. We’re doing everything we can to secure it for them so they can choose how they live.”
