    Somebody gets around a little or there wouldn't be such a huge discrepancy in the coloring.....my guess is somebody grabbed a slave somewhere down the line, which means they have a lot to answer for in about 300 years.

    Are they shooting at the plane?????

    Exactly.

    There are thought to be a hundred or so such tribes in remote areas of the Amazon.

    If you look really closely, one of them has an empty glass coke bottle.

    Their level of contact is minimal, they are not isolated -- but they are still savages

    Their huts and level of ritual indicates on going contact and a regional tribal society. Like other remote jungle groups that are still in a near-neolithic state, though, I question if they missed out on some important city-builder genetic updates.

    Should they be left alone as part of the fauna in a nature preserve, enslaved as prehensile donkeys, put on government subsidies, or given small pox blankets?

    I think I have some blankets left with the family papers and heirlooms if we decide to go with the last option.
