The last thing these people need is "modern" technology like matches, fire arms and stuff, so they will become dependant of them and forget their self-sustaining ways. It already happened to so many other tribes, disgusting...
    Completely agree with this. I wonder often what the world today would be like for all peoples had we left each other's civilization's totally alone to prosper in whichever direction they would take.

    I hope these people get to continue their culture untouched.

    Sadly there isn't one tribe left in the world that has had no outside interference (contact by eyesight). They should never have flown above the huts in the first place. He did exactly what he is said that he is against.

    Everyone and everything has become modernized, and the way of life from the past will fade away soon. Maybe we can revive our old Germanic lifestyles one hopeful day – at the detriment of certain groups that would strongly wish against it.

    brazilian tribal contact

    Contact has been made. It's only a matter of time before the benefits of civilization begin to arrive. Such as alcohol, tobacco, firearms, drugs and infectous diseases too name a few. You'll know its over when Wal-Mart and McDonalds open up shops...

    Tasaday Redux.

    I wouldn't get too teary-eyed about those poor old "Noble Savages".
    "Primitive" or "indigenous" cultures are pretty much like "modern" cultures in that there are good ones and bad ones. And the difference between the bad and good has more to do with their inherent genetic loading rather than with any degree of "pristine" isolation.
    It's pretty obvious that Rousseau never actually met any real savages, because
    anyone who has spent any length of time with "primitive" or "indigenous" "societies" knows that one's admiration for same is inversely correlated with
    one's length of familiarization.
    I have yet to meet any regular person that has lived with "primitive/indigenous" peoples for a significant period of time that doesn't
    hold them in contempt. Needless to say, reality doesn't sell well to the "Noble Savage" savants, so the professional adventurers have to keep up a steady flow of faith-promoting stories of Wise Shamans and true-blue Savage Side-kicks for the hicks back home.
    And as for "primitive" peoples living in "harmony with nature", that is the biggest joke of all. The only primitive people that "live in harmony with nature" are the ones that are too stupid to do anything else. History is replete with examples of primitive tribes getting their hands on "improved technology" and then proceeding to rape and pillage the environment at a rate that would make a 19th century Robber Baron blush.
    And don't blame "modern" or "Western" technology either. The extreme destruction caused by these technology-enhanced primitives simply demonstrates their extreme disdain for the natural world. In fact, for thousands of years primitive peoples with just their primitive tools have made the active, aggressive, wide-spread, ongoing destruction of the environment an integral part of their "culture".
    Of course, I'm sure all of you "Noble Savage" dilettantes are very familiar with
    that ingenious, indigenous, culturally relevant, "natural" farming method developed over thousands of years by instinctively ecologically sensitive primitive farmers, known by its technical name as Swidden Agriculture, but
    more commonly called by it's more endearing, descriptive colloquial name,i.e., slash and burn farming.

    The truth is that ecology and nature preservation is a Western idea and movement.
    The urge to preserve or regain that primeval world of our ancestors seems to be an innate part of our Racial Soul.
    A casual perusal of the whole back-to-nature, out-side, adventure sports, eco-travel, save-the-earth-rain forest-snail darter-Tasadays-spotted owl-Miskito Indians-whatever movement is composed almost exclusively of Westerners, or
    for those of you not quite so PC, White people.
    To prove my point, oh so poignantly, the latest issue of "Outside" magazine has an article,( tucked in between the endless articles of endless streams of White
    Folks engaging in an incredible array of Outdoor Activities), entitled "The Outdoors Are Too White. Discuss." It is a "panel" of, apparently, all the non-white outdoorsy types they could round up, all five of them, who proceed to whine about Whiaate Outdoorsy types not being Incluusive. It kinda reminds me of that famous interview with Sir Edmund Hillary where he explains that he was unable to climb Mt Everest because those Sherpas made him feel "different".
