Astonishing new photos of one of the world’s last uncontacted tribes 31 January 2011


Dramatic photos show tribe threatened by loggers invading neighbouring territory. 
UPDATE: 4 February 2011 

An extraordinary new film of the tribe in these pictures has been released. It is the first aerial footage of any uncontacted community. Watch now »

New photos obtained by Survival International show uncontacted Indians in never-seen-before detail. The Indians are living in Brazil, near the Peruvian border, and are featured in the ‘Jungles’ episode of BBC1’s ‘Human Planet’ (Thurs 3 Feb, 8pm, UK only).

The pictures were taken by Brazil’s Indian Affairs Department, which has authorized Survival to use them as part of its campaign to protect their territory. They reveal a thriving, healthy community with baskets full of manioc and papaya fresh from their gardens.

The tribe’s survival is in serious jeopardy as an influx of illegal loggers invades the Peru side of the border. Brazilian authorities believe the influx of loggers is pushing isolated Indians from Peru into Brazil, and the two groups are likely to come into conflict.

First ever aerial footage of uncontacted Amazon tribe released
updated 4 February 2011

Extraordinary film footage narrated by movie star Gillian Anderson has launched Survival International’s new campaign to protect some of the world’s last uncontacted tribes.

New film footage released today shows uncontacted Indians on the Brazil-Peru border in never-seen-before detail. It is the first-ever aerial footage of an uncontacted community.

Ms Anderson said today, ‘What comes across very powerfully from this amazing footage is how healthy and confident these people appear. I hope they can be left alone – but that will only happen if the loggers are stopped.’

The footage was filmed by the BBC in collaboration with the Brazilian government, for the new BBC 1 ‘Human Planet’ series (broadcast 3 Feb). The Brazilian government has authorized Survival to use the footage as part of its campaign. Photos of the tribe were published worldwide by Survival earlier this week.

Global coverage of the story has already pushed the Peruvian authorities into action – they have announced they will work with Brazil’s Indian Affairs department (FUNAI) to protect the area more effectively.

The Indians’ survival is in jeopardy as an influx of illegal loggers invades the Peru side of the border. Brazilian authorities believe the influx of loggers is pushing isolated Indians from Peru into Brazil, and the two groups are likely to come into conflict.

Survival Director Stephen Corry said today, ‘The very dangerous future for uncontacted tribal peoples should be of worldwide concern. Gillian Anderson’s help here will draw more attention to it – vital if the world is finally going to call a real halt to the centuries of destruction.’

    Der Xingu ist in Gefahr.
    Bau und Betrieb des geplanten Wasserkraftwerks Belo Monte sind ein Angriff auf den Fluss, die Umwelt und die dort lebende Bevölkerung.
    Der Planet Erde gehört uns allen.
    Auf diesem Planeten gibt es nur ein Amazonien in seiner Biodiversität.

    Einzigartig ist auch der Fluss Xingu.
    Solidarisch mit den indigenen Völkern und den Siedlern entlang der Flüsse bekräftigen wir: Der Xingu soll für immer leben!

    ☆☆ The immediate effects of deforestation may not yet be felt, but if our generation doesn’t feel it the next generation and their children will be the ones to suffer. It is the actions of the human race that can make or break the future of the planet.
    Looking forward to your next entry… I am sure you will provide us with something to ponder over. 🙂 Hope your week starts off smooth and stays on course Connie. ☆☆

    I respect the tribe but what a shame that when it comes to illegal logging we only care if it affects humans, not wild animals. Never the less, their habitat and way of life should be protected from exploitation of any kind.

      Well Connie.. I have been meaning to come by and say hello for some time now. Busy schedule. Uuugh! I do hope that you have been taking good care. Have you been keeping busy? This week was off to a good start and has been picking up speed, here`s hoping the rest of the week goes smooth and just as fast… for you as well.

    • We people in the modern world thinks most of luxury. It’s good luxury here, luxury there, but how about the only ,beautiful nature only left for us all and specially the tribes who lived their all lives here in this beautiful nature? THEY LOVE TO LIVE HERE.WHY CAN’T WE NOT RESPECT THAT?
      To bring them to live with wall to wall bricks one after the other, is that what we wanted?
      How could they survive? Thanks Seth for sharing your very important thoughts. hugs~connie

  19. Hello Connie.
    I was watching the program “Human planet” and indeed saw the footage of the tribe in question. I wondered at the time, just what was in the minds of these innocent people as they gazed up at the plane. Did they fear for their lives ? if not, then they should have, because the white man had arrived !!!

    I have a friend in Sweden who’s G/farther was born on the banks of the Amazon. She herself was born in Brazil,
    a very beautiful lady from a very beautiful land.
    Damn them all to hell for their unfeeling hearts.
    A most worthy post !!!

    February 4, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    • My heartfelt thanks Kenny for your thoughts.it is very sad.This is a total destruction for the nature, the culture, the rainforest, the river and the indigenous people who have rights for their lives and the place they wanted live their lives

      February 4, 2011 at 6:49 pm

  24. It is true that modern technologies are good to humankind in most cases .But this project will cost a lot of Environmental and human Destructions. We think of luxuries, modern technologies, well in GOOD..but please, leave the Best Nature which is left for us and future generations to come. So many dams being built in every country in our planet ,that have caused a lot of floods, thus… leads to more poverty specially in the third world countries..

    February 4, 2011 at 2:25 pm

    It would seem that mankind is destined to ruin the world as we know it, technologies are a wonderful thing, in the right hands of course…

    A very thought provoking blog my wicked friend and a subject that most certainly needs some careful consideration, let us hope that common sense prevails? Have a lovely Friday Ranny…

  27. SethPopowich

    This is so sad. Evil Corporatists see a legal way to steal land from indigenous people at last. This is unimaginable. Nobody, and no country either, “owns” our planet or nature, it was just -on the most- put at our disposal, as something to take care of, something to pass on to our children, and the seventh generation. Apparently some people don’t think that the Creator knew what He was doing when this earth was created otherwise, they would not keep altering it. We need the rainforest! Another ill conceived project that needs to be stopped!
