Peru struggles to protect indigenous tribe

Peruvian authorities say they are struggling to keep outsiders away from a previously isolated Amazon people. They have been appearing on a riverbank popular with tourists since May last year. Anthropologists are puzzled over why the tribe would leave the safety of their jungle homes.

Watch the video, listen out for the following vocabulary:

just as well, venture, arrows, warning, territory, jungle, banks, illnesses, to exploit, to put a stop to, widespread, threatening, isolated, unknown, hidden, insatiable, ever more

What do you think, should contact be made with uncontacted tribes?

    First of all no one have the right to demolish their home. They will fight event they can’t win. They are human. Before doing anything at others people’s home, we should talk, communicate, understand then conclude with win – win solution.

    I think we damaged the planets too much. We should stop it that made our environment getting worst and worst.

    If city people can’t find the way to communicate with uncontacted tribe then they should not start to do this.

    • Very good answer 🙂

      (let me just make a few small corrections)

      First of all no one HAS the right to demolish their home. They will fight EVEN IF they can’t win. They are human. Before doing anything TO others people’s homeS, we should talk, communicate, understand then conclude with A win – win solution.

      I think we DAMAGE the PLANET too much. We should stop MAKING our environment worsE and worsE.

      If city people can’t find the way to communicate with uncontacted tribeS then they should not start to do this.
