Rare footage of never-before-seen Amazon tribe filmed by drone

Brazil’s agency for indigenous affairs, Funai, this week released video of several members of the tribe walking across a clearing in Vale do Javari, an indigenous territory in the state of Amazonas. The team travelled more than 180 kilometres, sailing on rivers, riding on trucks on roads, and on bikes on closed trails, and walked another 120 kilometers on foot deep into the dense forest to get to them, the agency wrote in a Facebook post accompanying the video, adding that the tribe had been monitored before but was only captured on camera this one time. Funai has registered 107 isolated tribes in Latin America’s largest nation, but it has a policy of not making contact with them, choosing to take videos and photos of them from a distance.
