New isolated tribe discovered in the Amazon

This story was a hoax!
Judging by the warriors taking aim at the aircraft that photographed them, they wish to remain 'uncontacted.'

It amazes me that in this day, there are tribes of indigenous people living in the jungles of Brazil that have not been contacted or touched by modern civilization. Since this tribe has not been contacted, we have no idea of their background or what language they speak. It does appear that after first seeing the plane, they donned red war paint and brandished weapons for the plane's repeated passes. Fascinating.
Every effort needs to be made to protect the environment in which these people live, which remains threatened by logging and cattle farming.
