Imperiled Amazon Indians Make 1st Contact With Outsiders

Indigenous Amazonian people who have never made contact with the outside world connected with a group of settled Indians in Brazil after migrating to evade drug traffickers and illegal loggers, advocates say. The news was released Thursday and comes after sightings of the un-contacted Indians in Brazil near the border with Peru, according to the group Survival International. This could be a deadly development for the tribe, which faces the risk of clashes with other groups and contagious diseases to which they have no immunity.
