Peru claims to have found new tribe

Authorities in Peru have released footage of what they claim is a previously uncontacted group in the Amazon. The discovery was made by Indepa, the government agency for indigenous people.

“We have been able to find and casually meet voluntarily isolated populations or initiate first contact,” said Indepa President Mayta Capac Alatrista. “We suppose this contact was made because they went down to the streams in search of food because they are nomads.”

The tribe was apparently spotted during the monitoring of checkpoints aimed at keeping
unwanted visitors, notably illegal loggers, at a distance. The skeletons of hunted animals and tribal tools have also been displayed as evidence that these really are the people that time forgot.
