The Brazilian government has confirmed the existence of an uncontacted tribe found in the southwestern area of Amazon rain forest. The lost tribe of 200 was founded by researchers from Brazil’s Indian protection agency in the dense rainforest of Vale do Javari – about 1,130 kilometers east of Manaus. The government organization named National Indian Foundation (FUNAI) reported that researchers were first aware of the tribe thanks to studying some small gaps in the forest while reviewing satellite imagery of the Javari Valley in the western Amazon.
Authorities said that the remote group may contain around 200 indigenous people who belong to the Pano linguistic group. The most recently identified tribe live together in four traditionally built huge and straw-roofed buildings. They grow corn, bananas, peanuts and other crops surrounding the houses for food. The lost tribe is believed to have never contacted with the outside world. Authorities are currently concerned about the group’s safe due to the illegal loggers, ranchers and tribal conflicts.
