Be a responsible traveller. Show tribal people respect and meet them on their premises. Visiting people with a different lifestyle and culture could sometimes be a very rewarding adventure, but be aware of that many tribal communities are extremely vulnerable to outside influences. All tribal people need to be protected from tourists in order to preserve their unique lifestyle and cultures. Travellers should understand that some tribes would like to live undisturbed, and that visit would be an intrusion.
There's nothing quite as exhilarating as heading on an adventure with only your imagination to limit you. Travel in Papua New Guinea is really an exciting experience where few things are as expected. Michael "Mick" James Leahy, an Australian explorer and colonialist, started his exploration of the island in 1930. It`s a long time ago, but some parts of the island is still unexplored.
The Norwegian Regnskogfondet, reports that a group of the Mashco-Piro Indians in Peru has attacked an Indian village in the Amazon. One person is critically injured after getting an arrow in the stomach.
Actual the Indian tribe is not Mohican, but Mohegan. When I was a little boy I find it very exciting to read James Fenimore Cooper`s dramatic historical novel The Last of the Mohican. On my way travelling around in Canada for over 10 years ago, I met some Indians with origin from the Huron tribe involved in the novel. In 1992 director Michael Mann turned this story into an exciting and visually stunning adventure on movie.
When James Fenimore Cooper`s dramatic novel the The Last of the Mohicans was published in 1826, he made the North American Indian tribe Mohicans immortal. Not just as a myth, but he also made the public aware of that this tribe is still existing. Today the last of the Mohicans live on a reservation in Shawano County, in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It`s few hundred of them and they are still going strong!
The Observer, a London-based newspaper, published on 22 June 2008 the article "Secret of the lost tribe that wasn't," telling that the tribe's existence has been known since 1910. The recently photographed tribe might have had contact with neighboring tribal groups. Just to make it clear: the word 'uncontacted' means they don't have any contact with outsiders, but it`s correct that they not have been recently discovered.
There are hundreds of tribes in the Amazon rainforest. This enormous rainforest has turn into a giant hiding place for the indigenous people. Many things, especially logging, has forced the isolated groups, among them the Mashco-Piro and Yora tribes, deeper into Peru's jungle frontier with Brazil and Bolivia. Tribes have suffered many deaths from diseases contracted from outsiders. Some tribes in Amazon are Amahuaca, Huaorani, Kogi Indians, Yanomami Indians, who struggle for their existence.
We in Travel Exploraitons encourage all travellers to be responsible regarding tribal people. Show them respect and meet them on their premises. Visiting people with a different lifestyle and culture could sometimes be a very rewarding adventure, but be aware of that many tribal communities are extremely vulnerable to outside influences.
Members of one of the world's last uncontacted tribes have been observed and photographed from the air near the border between Brazil and Peru. According to the organisation Survival International, the photos were taken during several flights over one of the remotest parts of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil's Acre state.
Some people really glorify the Sherpas as pure, natural and mystical gods of the nature. Others view them as low-cast inhabitants of the third world. According to ExplorersWeb, the truth is of course that the Sherpas are just like the rest of us; some are good, some are bad, and most are somewhere in between.
A team of researchers led by Danish professor Eske Willerslev shows that the ancestors of the North American Indians who came from Asia were the first people in America, and that they were of neither European nor African descent. It also shows that immigration to North America took place approximately 1,000 years earlier than assumed. These findings change our understanding of the early immigration route to the American continent.
