Some amazing footage has emerged from Brazil recently.
The 8-minute video shows a group of indigenous people never seen before by the outside world. They were apparently fleeing illegal loggers and drug traffickers.
From ABC News:
The group of men are believed to be natives of Peru but they were filmed in northern Brazil on the banks of the Envira River which runs near the Peruvian border. The encounter took place within the last two weeks, but the video was released Thursday by the Brazilian indigenous authority FUNAI.
According to the report, “illegal settlers” had set their houses on fire and killed their tribal elders.
“We don’t know whether they were shot or how they were killed, but we do know that they were killed by the illegal settlers,” Rebecca Spooner of Survival International said. “Their houses were set on fire, their elders were killed and they were shot at themselves.”
