First Ever Footage Of Uncontacted Amazon Tribe. What They Captured Is Unimaginable
March 17, 2014
It's hard to imagine there are unknown groups of people living in this world without any outside contact with the civilized world.
Jose Carlos Meirelles has been researching a tribe that inhabits the dense Amazon forest and has zero contact with the modern world.
This is the first time Meirelles agreed to allow a camera crew to tag along and capture aerial footage.
"We know so little about these peoples," says Meirelles. "It's even difficult to convince governments that they exist."
"One image of them has more impact than a thousand reports," Meirelles adds.
The people are one with nature, living off the land. Their gardens are full of fruit and vegetables. This is the real life Avatar.
The annato trees that populate the region produce the tribes bright red body paint.
Now that they have been documented, Meirelles believes they should be free to choose whether they make contact with the outside world.
Hopefully, they are left alone to live in peace as they have for a very long time.
