    As they likely are reproductively isolated from the rest of the humans, how do we know that they are not a different species with whom we are unable to reproduce?

    They, and the Kogi of Colombia, will still be here when we aren't.I imagine the few Mayans that are left might do OK too.
    This time they'll be the ones told by Gawd "Go and replenish the earth" (Do it AGAIN)

    From being shot or attacked, of course. From actually being exposed to the rest of the world, no. They deserve the same protections that all people deserve - life and freedom. They deserve the right to make choices but not to be isolated to the point they are not even really contacted.
