Photographer Discovers Uncontacted Tribe in Amazon
A photographer from Brazil stumbled upon what he and other experts agree is another uncontacted, unreached tribal people living in the rainforests of the Amazon. According to the Guardian's article and other estimates there are approximately 80 such groups of indigenous tribal people living in and around the Amazon rainforest that have yet to be contacted by outsiders.
The lastest discovery by photographer Ricardo Stuckert was documented in the Guardian with photos of the tribe and reported that the helicopter Stuckert was flying ended up taking a detour to avoid ensuing rain ended up flying over the longhouse the tribe lives in.
Stuckert, who is writing a book about some of the uncontacted tribes of the Amazon told the Guardian,
“I took the camera and started photographing, I didn’t have much time to imagine what was happening.”
Stuckert discovered the tribe on his first flight and later went back and was able to capture detailed photograhy of the tribe. Experts believe there are up to about 300 members in this tribe living off the land by farming crops like bananas and peanuts and hunting and fishing.
