Brazil: Images of the ‘Invisible Indians’ in the Amazon

Altino Machado presents pictures [PT] of what could be the last isolated ethnic group in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, the so called ‘Invisible Indians’. The pictures were taken from a plane by José Carlos dos Reis Meirelles Jr., coordinator of FUNAI's [Brazilian National Indian Foundation] Ethno-environmental Protection Front, in the region close to Feijó, in Acre State. The Indians reacted by attacking the plane with bow and arrows.
