|Uncontacted Tribes film by Survival International|
I ask that you please take the time to watch this brief film at Survival International and then take some action in defense of tribal peoples all over the world. There are currently about 100 tribes who survive choosing not to have contact with "civilization". All of these people are under threat of extinction due to loss of their lands from exploitation of natural resources, and by disease from contact with outsiders.
Recently, a newly "discovered" tribe was photographed near the border between Brazil & Peru in the Amazon Rainforest. Gas & oil companies & illegal loggers claimed these people did not exist, and tried to use that as an excuse to exploit the land. Immediate action needs to be taken so these tribes will not be put in danger, and you can help by becoming informed, writing letters, and/or making donations.
