Incredible Video Shows Isolated Amazon Tribe Making Contact With Outside World
On the border of Peru and Brazil, an uncontacted group of people wearing loincloths and carrying weapons was recently filmed meeting outsiders.
New video shows an isolated tribe from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil making contact for the first time with villagers who live along a river at the Peruvian border.
The native group identified as the Rio Xinane, who are part of the Panoan linguistic group, visited the Ashaninka, a settled indigenous group, who live along the Envira River near the border of Peru, on June 26.
The Rio Xinane, who wear only loincloths, returned again to the village on June 30, and stayed for three days with the help of an interpreter who was brought to the scene. The second encounter was recorded by Brazil's Indigenous Affairs Department, according to AFP.
