Uncontacted Tribe in South America Goes Missing

The Brazilian guard post protecting the uncontacted Indians who were filmed from the air earlier this year has been over-run by heavily-armed men, suspected to be drug-traffickers. It has been ransacked and vital equipment destroyed.

Fears are now mounting for the welfare of the Indians after workers from FUNAI (the government’s Indian Affairs Department) found one of the traffickers’ rucksacks with a broken arrow inside. A rapid survey by government officials has shown no trace of the Indians, who made worldwide headlines in February.

Police have reportedly found a package containing 20kg of cocaine nearby. It is feared the Envira River, where the post is located, has become an entry point into Brazil for cocaine smugglers from Peru.

According to local reports, police have detained one man, a Portuguese national who was arrested for drug trafficking in March and subsequently deported.

José Carlos Meirelles, the former head of the post, has been helicoptered back in to the post with several men, and reported that several groups of men armed with sub-machine guns and rifles are in the forest surrounding the base.

Carlos Travassos, the head of the Brazilian government’s isolated Indians department, said today, ‘Arrows are like the identity card of uncontacted Indians. We think the Peruvians made the Indians flee. Now we have good proof. We are more worried than ever. This situation could be one of the biggest blows we have ever seen in the protection of uncontacted Indians in recent decades. It’s a catastrophe.’

In a message to Survival, Meirelles said, ‘We will remain here, come what may, until the Brazilian state decides to resolve this situation once and for all. Not for our protection, but for the protection of the Indians.’ Meirelles told Survival that a police team is embarking today on a hunt for the remaining traffickers.

Survival International Director Stephen Corry said today, ‘This is extremely distressing news. There is no knowing how many tribal peoples the drugs trade has wiped out in the past, but all possible measures should be taken to stop it happening again. The world’s attention should be on these uncontacted Indians, just as it was at the beginning of this year when they were first captured on film.’

A Tragic First Contact
Jorge, a Murunahua man who lost his eye when he was shot by loggers during first contact, recalls the tragedy that followed.

From the site:


MYTH: They aren’t aware of the outside world
Everyone has neighbours, even when they’re some distance away, and they’ll know who they are. If it’s another tribe, they may or may not have friendly relations with them. And many uncontacted tribes have suffered appalling violence in the past from settlers.


MYTH: They are living in the ‘Stone Age’
All peoples are changing all the time and always have, including uncontacted tribes. Survival doesn’t talk about ‘pristine’ tribes or cultures. They are not backward or ‘Stone Age’, they just live differently.

Re: Uncontacted Tribe in South America Goes Missing

Actually, these people are fully aware that there is an outside world. This video is making the point that, one, these people want nothing to do with our modern society (they know it's there, however), and, two, it is the government of Peru that is not acknowledging their existence.

But to think they could die from the common cold. And what about dental hygiene? I think I'd take my chances with the outside world.
