Unknown Peru Amazon Tribe Seen
According to a team of ecologists, a previously unknown indigenous group living in isolation has been found deep in Peru's Amazon jungle. As they flew overhead looking for illegal loggers, the ecologists spotted the 21 Indians near the Brazilian border. Contact with outsiders can be fatal for isolated tribes people who have no immunity to many diseases. Some groups have fled deep into the jungle to avoid contact with loggers and oil and gas prospectors.
