@GOMAR and others who don't believe there are any lost tribes, I suggest that you do a little research such as the following book:
The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon's Last Uncontacted Tribes
By Scott Wallace

https://www.facebook.c​om/uncontacted (external link)


OTOH
the pictures shown are not lost tribes. They may very well be remote but they are not uncontacted or lost

.

Narwhal I think it would depend in what context one uses the word lost.
Literally lost = can not find it, however there are tribes that are known about but continue to live as they have done for thousands of years in isolation, but the possibility of western civilization overtaking them and the tribe integrates into the modern world and the culture no longer used then that tribe would be lost.
On the other hand if a tribe that has secumbed to western civalizeation but the descendents continue with the tribes culture, is it lost?

@cdiver2: I am using 'lost' in the sense of 'uncontacted' as used in the book that I referenced.
On the expedition documented in the book they spent months searching for evidence of uncontacted tribes and found it. Here is another reference. http://theunconqueredb​ook.com/ (external link)

As of 2009 there was evidence of an estimated 26 uncontacted or lost tribes in the Brazilian Amazon

Wow that is a large number that makes me think there could be more in PNG.
I watched the full documentary of the video I posted and the guy said that the jungle in PNG was by far a lot worse than the Amazon. Having flown across PNG in a twin prop job at a fairly low level four times (long story) I can belive it. There appeared to be no level ground just up and down and totally covered in jungle.

Give me a break with these "lost native tribes" nonesense. There has not been an uncontacted tribe left anywhere in more than 50 years.

Clearly you haven't spent much time in the Deep South.

There are plenty of people who have seen very little modern civilization.

I wish I was joking.

Beautifully shot. My only nit pick is the rather heavy-handed desaturation in many of the photos. Seems a waste to lose all of the vibrant colors of the clothing and face paint.

The discussion on the legitimacy of the tribes is amusing. I don't recall anyone accusing the Amish of being poseurs, so why should these groups be considered any less authentic, even if they've been exposed to "civilization"? And as was said before, the article said "remotest", not "undiscovered".

Supposedly there are still some uncontacted tribes in the Amazon who have (according to articles I read) no comparitive immune system and would easily die of disease if we mingled.

Keep in mind that today's modern civilizations will be admired in the future, just like the Mayans are admired today.

They'll say, "Son, it's hard to believe it once took people all day to travel from the United States to Australia."

Remember the rule: When the people you meet think "Deliverance" is a love story, you've gone too far south.

You're assuming that there will be a United States, or an Australia.

marveled at, maybe. admired? eeehhh, not thinking so unless destroying the earth and exploiting anyone and anything for profit constitutes grounds for admiration.

I think the gist of this is there are still a lot of ethnic groups that still live the way they did a hundred years ago.

some genuine tribes pics taken a long time ago. Anything taken since 1960's is staged.

Ever read the Bible? It mentions slavery, which took place thousands of years before the white man brought slaves to America from Africa.
Slavery existed in Babylon, Greece, Rome, Egypt, Africa, Persia, Asia for thousands of years, yet we do admire those cultures.
Yes, in 2000 years humans of 2013 will be regarded as barbarians just the same as we regard those who lived 2000 years ago as such.

A photograph was staged? C'est un scandale! (Hint: every portrait is staged. It's called "posing".)

Did you even read the other posts in this thread? The article in question never once once used the term "lost tribe". We get your point.
