"Lost" tribe, or hoax?

Brazilian government photos were recently released of an uncontacted Amazon tribe. The story goes that illegal logging pushed them from their original territory in Peru into Brazil. What can we paleos learn from such tribes, even if they're not quite as pristine as alleged? The first thing I noticed is that their feet look great--nice toe spread. I hope that the TOMS shoe people don't find them!

That's because most self-referential links are crap. Melissa is not :-)

You can learn that some peoples are feeling well just by care and and life with forest and his and her inhabitants. That the rainforest is threatend, that there are things to focus beside diet and crosstraining. maybe this is for lot of people a better way. resist rewild

I'm ordinarily not a big fan of self-referential links, but I must admit your blog post is excellent :)

Hehe, they aren't even eating a paleo diet, since they grow maize and peanuts. You can also see they have some modern tools like a machete. They are probably remnants of an agricultural tribe that was forced to flee into the jungle because of outside pressure. I think this is actually a more interesting story because it shows people rejecting government/economic oppression, but people are more interested in the idea of them as pristine.

They still look quite healthy though. An active lifestyle and unprocessed foods are obviously good enough for them despite the peanuts :)
