The Present Looks Back At The Past. In Real Time.

The BBC has a fascinating story up on the effort to save one of South America's few remaining "uncontacted indigenous tribes" living in the jungle on Brazil's border with Peru.

Pictures of the tribe taken from a Brazilian airplane(!!!) may be found here.

One AP photo description reads:

The first flight had an obvious impact on the tribe. By the time the plane returned, most of the women and children had fled and those who remained had painted their bodies.
Mind. Blowing. Global. Diversity.

Even in 2008.
