Categories: Latin America, Brazil, Breaking News, Environment, Ethnicity & Race, Indigenous

Altino Machado presents pictures [1] [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 [2]. The Indians reacted by attacking the plane with bow and arrows.
