A few months ago, I reported how Google is using its drones and Google Earth technology to monitor an uncontacted Amazonian tribe。 Now, there’;s convincing evidence that the same tribe has come in contact with non-indigenous locals, then with western researchers in the most unfortunate of circumstances。 One, the contact was initiated by criminals operating illegal narcotrafficking whose routes apparently pass through the tribe’;s territory。 Allegedly they’;ve been threatened and might be forced to relocate, something inconceivable for the locals。 Second, the contact might result in dramatic consequences as some members were infected with influenza, a potentially fatal disease for the indigenous population since their immune system lacks non-native adaptation。

Third degree contact

Researchers from Brazil’s Indian affairs department (FUNAI) encountered natives who emerged from the  forest along the Upper Envira River while returning from a raid on another remote, but settled tribe。 The tribesmen and researchers spent three weeks together。 In this time, an invaluable cultural experience took place。 Can you imagine what would it be like to meet people from the future? I’;m putting my money this is how the natives must have  felt, too。 But the researchers weren’;t the first ‘;extraterrestrials’; they’;ve met, though。

The team have good reasons to assume the tribe members were fleeing  illegal loggers and cocaine traffickers, yet right now the ‘;civilized’; criminals are the least of their worries。 According to a FUNAI announcement, the members were infected with influenza。 The flue is something most of us can handle –; sure, we might get stuck in bed with terrible headaches, but it won’;t kill us。 The same can’;t be said for tribesmen in Brazil’;s Acre。
