Photographer Catches A Few Shots Of An Amazonian Tribe Which Has Never Contacted With Our Civilization Before (11 pics)

Brazilian photographer Ricardo Stuckert had his helicopter flight diverted because of a storm…

…but this detour led to a remarkable discovery of a remote rain forest tribe

“To think that in the 21st century, there are still people who have no contact with civilization, living like their ancestors did 20,000 years ago—it’s a powerful emotion”

“These groups change locations every four years or so”

Some tribe members threw spears and fired arrows at the uninvited guests

“They’re messages. Those arrows mean ‘Leave us in peace. Do not disturb’”

“Once their territory is encroached by loggers or prospectors, the isolated groups are finished”

“They could disappear from the face of the Earth, and we wouldn’t even know it”

Because they have not yet made peaceful contact with the outside world, the tribe’s name is still unknown

Brazil’s officials call them simply “isolated Indians of the upper Humaitá”

The encounter took place in the state of Acre, near Brazil’s border with Peru
