Funai spots more Indians along the EnviraMay 30th, 2008 - 6:57 pm ICT by David M N James
One of Brazil’s last uncontested Indian tribes has been found near the Peruvian border by officials of the National Indian Foundation. Snap shots of strong and healthy warriors, six huts and a tract of well tilled and food crop vegetated region on the banks of the river were taken by the Funai. This is an Ethno-Environmental Protected Area lying along a stretch of the Envira River in flights over remote Acre state. This has been confirmed by Brazilian government foundation, Funai. This foundation has been loaned millions of dollars by the World Bank to construct roads.
The tribe is one of 100 unknown tribes in the world. According to Funai, the tribe is one of these unknown tribes in Brazil and could be endangered. Indians tribes are known to prevent invasions of their land to ensure their autonomy, the National Indian Foundation has said and the tribe has been living along the Envira River to protect their survival.
Another foundation Survival International has confirmed that this Brazil Indian tribe in danger from illegal logging in Peru, which is forcing various tribes over the border and an ethno conflict is on the offing. About 500 semi-autonomous Indians are today settled on the Brazilian side of the border with Peru.
This tribe adds to the heritage and history of the Indians a new chapter to its diversity. Though not known to which Brazilian tribe they belong to is a learning lesson to conservatisms since, Funai points out that there are about four distinct isolated peoples existing in this river bank region that they have been looking after and examining for 20 years.
