"Uncontacted Indians," who have never before had any contact with the outside world, were discovered in the Envira River region in Brazil during a flight in May 2008 according to Funai, the National Indian Foundation, and the group Survival International. The tribe is shown here reacting to the unexpected visit over their camp, located close to the border with Peru.


They've never had any contact with the outside world, they've no knowledge of technology (as shown by the fact that they're trying to shoot at a plane with bows and arrows). It's sad that the place where they live is being destroyed though.


Do you think we should contact them?

EDIT: More pictures of them and info here

Why isn't there a "This Shit is Old As Two Days Ago You N00b" option?

Because no-one cares what you think.

Lets take the pros and cons of contact into account.

Pros-(not prioritized)
We might be able to provide medical advancements.
We will COMPLETELY make their standard of living wayy better.
We might learn something new from their culture or whatever.(New languages,art,methods of agriculture etc)

Cons-
They might retaliate violently and Bush will nuke em' because he's a retard.
*hopes no one notices lack-of-sig*

Actually when we've contacted tribes in the past loads of them have died from our diseases and many of the rest have ended up homeless on the streets of the cities begging and being prostitutes.

Definately don't contact them. Well maybe airdrop them a can of Coca Cola with a hidden camera to see what they do.

I think it'd be an absolutely stupid idea if we contacted them, because as we know from previous experience of contacting tribes if we go near them they can catch all sorts of things off us we don't even realize we're carrying because we're immune...

Whole tribes have come down with things with symptoms similar to things like the plague just from going near modern civilised peoples in our attempts to contact them.

Just leave them be tbh.
#36
no, we should leave them alone. they are probably perfectly happy with their way of life. let them be.

Don't get your knickers in a twist. If the Mods really don't like it then they'll close it. It's not like there's been a flood of threads on the topic and I did use the seach bar, it just didn't give me back anything.
On top of that that thread was only informing people of them, I'm wondering whether or not we should contact them.

I couldn't find the second thread on this. I'm not reporting it, but this is the third time this exact thread and article has been posted, and let's just say it's wearing a little thin and getting boring...
