Saving The Savage Beast

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil One of Brazil's last un-contacted Indian tribes has been spotted in the far western Amazon jungle near the Peruvian border.

The Indians were sighted during a fly over on the Ethno-Environmental Protected Area along the Envira River.

They saw 6 huts and a planted area and men from the tribe pointed arrows towards the small plane as it snapped some photographs of them. It is not known to which tribe they belong to.

Survival International said the Indians are in danger from illegal logging in Peru, which is driving tribes over the border and could lead to conflict with the estimated 500 un-contacted Indians now living on the Brazilian side.

There are more than 100 un-contacted tribes worldwide, most of them in Brazil and Peru, the group said in a statement.

Joseph Reid of 'Mission International' said: " These Indians are not just in danger from illegal logging but also from Satan. We must bring them news of the lord along with clothing to cover their sin and a Christian code of morality before anyone else gets to them ."

The National Indian Foundation of Brazil do not make contact during fly-bys they did however drop magazines containing the latest news about Shakira and Britney Spears as even the un-contacted tribes have a right to know.

I wonder how tempted those pilots are to chuck a Coke bottle out the window and watch the mayhem ensue?
