UNKNOWN Amazon tribe

Sometimes I really think that I live in a bubble. I ran across these pictures of an unknown Amazon Basin tribe. Honestly my little mind never even considered that there may be tribes out there in the world that have never had contact outside of their world. Can you imagine what they were thinking when they saw a plane hovering over them as they took pictures of them? In one of the pictures it appears that they are aiming/shotting up to the sky towards the plane. I’m thinking they are thinking that the plane is some outer space ship with aliens inside……. All I can say is WOW…….

Members of an unknown Amazon Basin tribe and their dwellings are seen during a flight over the Brazilian state of Acre along the border with Peru in this May, 2008 photo distributed by FUNAI, the government agency for the protection of indigenous peoples. Survival International estimates that there are over 100 uncontacted tribes worldwide, and says that uncontacted tribes in the region are under increasing threat from illegal logging over the border in Peru
