Exotic Tribes
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.

The uncontacted Mashco-Piro Indians has attacked a village in Peru!

2010-10-28
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.

This means that enough Mashco-Piro, who live without contact with the outside world, experience that the pressure on them increases in the area, says Anders Krogh from the Norwegian organisation, Regnskogfondet, Rainforest Foundation, in Oslo. - Especially from the north-west being a new timber boom that moves into their territory.

Indian village of Monte Salvado was established in the area in the early 90th century by American missionaries in an attempt to contact the uncontacted and Christian Indians who live there.

On Sunday evening, 24 October 2010, a village resident was critically injured after getting an arrow in the stomach.

Mashco-Piro Indians have not previously been aggressive. These nomadic Indians emerge each year at this time in that area, but have not previously acted aggressively.

Mashco-Piro Indians have pulled slightly away from the village, but residents are still experiencing the situation as threatening and do not dare venture outside the village limits.

The injured Indian will now get treatment at the hospital and the condition is reported as critical

Anders Krogh and photographer Johan Wildhagen visited checkpoint in Monte Salvado in 2009. Watch photos and the video from their visit here on Regnskogen website:

Uncontacted Indians: Indians who do not want contact with mainstream society is often called ucontaktede or voluntarily isolated Indians. They are extremely vulnerable if they come into contact with people outside. Diseases which are common and harmless to us can kill an entire village with uncontacted. These ethnic groups are also heavily dependent on nature for survival. They live by hunting and fishing, and great impact on the landscape destroying their livelihoods.
