This article amazed me. I was unaware that there were un-contacted tribes still around. At first I thought that they need some assistance to be modernized and then it hit me..............Why?

I lived in Delaware for a time and there was large amish population there. One day I was voicing my opinion on how weird I thought they were, and my boss at the time said why? They are a group doing there own thing with little impact on our society as a whole, what do you care?

So I wander about these tribes. I dont care either way in the long run but I say let them be. It is amazing to me that these tribes are still around....it's like an ant farm in some sick way.....They don't need our religion or the be enslaved and they dont need the pox. They are the only true link to the past we have. I wonder if the ferment any type of beverage?

I wonder if these are Jeff Bezo's own personal Umpa Lumpas or something? Amazon.com is a big place...

I think it's a little irresponsible for our first contact to be from airplanes. It's obvious, from the pictures with arrows, that the tribe is frightened. One sighting from an airplane could turn their religion/culture on its head. The next time we go to actually talk to them we'll find out that they sacrifice animals to the gods of Boeing.

100% agree to leave them alone....

But someone is going to want to study them....

Someone is going to want more photos for those nature magazines....

Someone is going to want to write more about them....

Some rich person is going to want to pay an arm and a leg to see them in person......

Someone is going to "spare the heathans and spread the good news"


Might as well just skip it all, destroy thier lifestyle, tradition, and culture, and thrust them into poverty.

i think that saying, "somethings are better left untouched and not known" applies here... or some variation of it.

We all know it's inevitable what will happen...unfortunately, they don't.

CDS will steal their kids...
FEMA will give them blue roofs...
INS will come in and deport them...
