First Contact - Lost Tribe of the Amazon

Postby bigdaddy » Mon Oct 17, 2016 12:11 pm

Saw this on Netflix. Also available on YouTube.

Fascinating documentary but tragic the massacres that have occurred particularly on the Peruvian side.

An Awá man from Brazil's northeastern Amazon for example, said: ‘When I lived in the forest, I had a good life. Now, if I meet one of the uncontacted… I’ll say, ‘Don’t leave… there’s nothing in the outside for you.’’

The wisdom accumulated by amazon tribes on how to protect the rainforest is sometimes considered primitive and with no value

With the pass of the years, it is been proven than they were right and the western civilization was wrong

Ecology is a new term for us, but they have practiced it from ancestral times
