Of all the tribal peoples wiped out for standing in the way of ‘progress’, few are as poignant as the Akuntsu.
No-one speaks their language, so the precise details of what happened to them may never be known. Introduced diseases are the biggest killer of isolated tribal people, who have not developed immunity to viruses such as influenza, measles and chicken pox that most other societies have been in contact with for hundreds of years. In Peru, more than 50% of the previously-uncontacted Nahua tribe were wiped out following oil exploration on their land in the early 1980s, and the same tragedy engulfed the Murunahua in the mid-1990s after being forcibly contacted by illegal mahogany loggers. One of the Murunahua survivors, Jorge, who lost an eye during first contact, told a Survival researcher, ‘The disease came when the loggers made contact with us, although we didn’t know what a cold was then. Christian missionaries, who have been making first contact with tribes for five hundred years, are still trying to do so today.
In Peru, just a few years ago, evangelical Protestant missionaries built a village in one of the remotest parts of the Peruvian Amazon with the aim of making contact with an uncontacted tribe living in that region. Members of the New Tribes Mission, a fundamentalist missionary organisation based in the US, carried out a clandestine mission to make contact with the Zo’e of Brazil to convert them to Christianity. The New Tribes Mission was totally unprepared and did not provide proper medical care to the Zo’e. The Murunahua were decimated by contact with loggers and, if nothing is done to stop the invasions, the same fate awaits the Mashco-Piro tribe. In 1970 the Panara people of Brazil numbered between 350 and 400 people, and lived in five villages, which were laid out with complex geometric designs and surrounded by huge gardens. Ake, a Panara leader who survived, recalls this time: ‘We were in the village and everybody began to die.
Between 1994 and 1996 the surviving Panara managed to return to the part of their land where there was still forest. The Jarawa tribe of the Andaman islands saw their land split in two when the islands administration built a highway through their territory.
After a long battle, India’s supreme court ordered the local government to close the road, ruling its construction was illegal and endangering the Jarawa’s lives.
We help tribal peoples defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.
Poison ivy, and poison can make a camping trip miserable if if you don’t know how to identify them.
Fortunately with just a little practice from what you’ll learn here in this video you will be able to identify poison ivy, and poison oak with relative ease.

But when agents of Brazil’s Indian affairs department FUNAI contacted them in 1995, they found that the cattle ranchers who had taken over the Indians’ land had massacred almost all the tribe, and bulldozed their houses to try to cover up the massacre.
One of the men, Pupak, has lead shot still buried in his back, and mimes the gunmen who pursued him on horseback.
Often believing that the tribes are ‘primitive’ and living pitiful lives ‘in the dark’, the missionaries’ ultimate aim is to convert them to Christianity – at whatever cost to the tribal peoples’ own health and wishes. Their policy to sedentarise the Zo’e around the mission meant disease spread rapidly, and the Indians’ diet suffered because the game they hunted became scarce due to the concentration of Indians in one area. Their presence often brings them into contact with the tribal people; many have died from diseases introduced by the loggers, or even been killed by them. Areas inhabited by uncontacted Indians are also home to some of the world’s last commercially-viable mahogany stands, and illegal loggers, taking advantage of the lack of any effective state control, have been plundering these areas at will. In a historic move they sued the Brazilian government for the appalling conditions it had inflicted on them.
If you are forced out into the woods in an emergency, or survival situation you could be in real trouble.

He and his small band of survivors now live alone in a fragment of forest – all that remains of their land, and their people. The man, known as Hipa, told a Survival researcher about first contact: ‘I was eating peanuts when I heard the missionaries coming in a motor-boat.
As the Zo’e’s health suffered, they began to lose their self-sufficiency, and became dependent on the missionaries for everything. Today they are hemmed in by massive agro-industrial projects, cattle ranches and colonist settlements. In October 1997, a judge found the Brazilian state guilty of causing ‘death and cultural harm’ to the Panara people and ordered the state to pay the tribe US$540,000 in compensation. There is not only a constant stream of settlers travelling in buses and taxis, but the road acts as a conduit for tourists, and for poachers targeting the Jarawa’s reserve (which, unlike the rest of the islands, is still covered in rainforest).
Following their first real contact in 1987, 45 Zo’e died from epidemics of flu, malaria and respiratory diseases transmitted by the missionaries.


For years we have been fleeing up these rivers, with the whites chasing us, cutting down all our forest.
Jarawa children are often seen by the side of the road, and there is some evidence of the sexual exploitation of Jarawa women. In 2011, she had the opportunity to represent the USA at the IPSC World Shoot XVI in Rhodes, Greece. Since the Zo’e have been left in peace and now receive proper medical care, their population is increasing. In an emergency operation, the survivors were airlifted to the Xingu Park, where yet more died. So it was no surprise to see Tori travel to Italy in early May to compete in the IDPA European Cup.During her time in Europe, Tori took time to partake in several sightseeing endeavors as well as cultural pastimes.
Tori also embarked on an activity that many athletes can only dream of – a snowboarding adventure at the Italian Alps.And then … it happenedIt was May 4 and Tori had taken several trips down the slopes.
Photo courtesy of Aaron NonakaTwo days after the accident, Tori wrote of the pain and fear that she felt at that moment:Friday, May 4 I broke my wrist while snow boarding. It was very difficult being faced with the uncertainty of when or if I could ever shoot again.
The friendly paramedics that I spoke to 20 minutes before were soon helping me to the bottom of the mountain. I arrived at the local hospital, anxious for the doctor to say it is not broken and to heal my wrist that I held close. X-rays confirmed the initial doctors prognosis that the left wrist was fractured (Tori’s strong hand is her right), but the doctor assured her that this would not be the end of her prominent career.Upon returning home to Virginia, Tori followed up with her own doctor, who again put her at ease with by confirming that the break was not too serious.
Tori used her downtime from competition to enjoy the right of passage that she was right around the corner, her high school graduation. At just 17 years of age, Tori had been working extra hard while balancing her shooting career to not only graduate with a very high GPA, but also to do it a year earlier than normal standard – another way that she has proven to the world that she is an exceptional young lady.At a practice session while healing.
She competed in a local USPSA competition June 1 and 2 to become acclimated with the device and to learn how to alter her shooting style to remain competitive, yet also keep the wrist safe.“There were three primary modifications that I had to make. Second, my reloads were very difficult because I was unable to properly rest the magazine in my palm.
