— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

TRIBES.

Check this really rather amazing short film that shows us the moment of discovery of one of the Uncontacted Tribes. There are 67 of these tribes within Brazil itself. It’s mind-blowing to think that there are still tribes out in the world that remain cut off not only from the developed world, but the even the poorest of countries. Contact however, must remain minimal at best, as the consequences for the tribes of making contact with the rest of the world can be devastating.

This website (from Survival) Augments the uniqueness of the main discovery video with a huge amount of video and pictorial content, as well as a cool use of Google Maps illustrating where the tribes are around the world. (Also, more photos HERE)

This really is fascinating stuff. It somehow stretches believability, but when you think of it in the context of our hyper-connected planet, where everything feels smaller and smaller, it’s somehow comforting fascinating to know that not all our world is discovered. That, in fact, there is much we don’t know about it.
