The behavior of the small group of Mashco-Piro Indians has puzzled scientists, who say it may be related to the encroachment of loggers and by low-flying aircraft from nearby natural gas and oil exploration in the southeastern region of the country.

Clan members have been blamed for two bow-and-arrow attacks on people near the riverbank in Madre de Dios state where officials say the Indians were first seen last May.
One badly wounded a forest ranger in October. The following month, another fatally pierced the heart of a local Matsiguenka Indian, Nicolas "Shaco" Flores, who had long maintained a relationship with the Mashco-Piro.

The advocacy group Survival International released photos Tuesday showing clan members on the riverbank, describing the pictures as the "most detailed sightings of uncontacted Indians ever recorded on camera."

The Mashco-Piro tribe is believed to number in the hundreds and lives in the Manu National Park that borders Diamante, a community of more than 200 people where Flores lived.

"The place where they are seen is one of heavy transit" of river cargo and tourist passage, and so the potential for more violent encounters remains high, Soria said.
That is compounded by culture clash. The Mashco-Piro live by their own social code, which Soria said includes the practice of kidnapping other tribes' women and children.

He said the Mashco-Piro are one of about 15 "uncontacted" tribes in Peru that together are estimated to number between 12,000 and 15,000 people living in jungles east of the Andes.....snip~

They are starting to run out of room. 12-15k of them all throughtout the Andes. But civilization is creeping in from all sides of them now. The articles says logging and of course drilling for Oil may be causing them to come out into the open. Can't stop progress. Eventually big buisness and government will get rid of them one way or another. :undecided:

that is sad

these people will either be killed or taken over by a society they can't hope to understand

only a matter of time

The Govt needs to start a program to find families willing to adopt them.

02-01-2012, 03:08 PM
that's a good idea the kids could end up adapting if they had a chance

it is a tough problem

I think there are already laws against making contact. Obviously, if it's accidental it's not punishable but I'm not sure how it works exactly.

What about when the Indians are the ones making contact? I think they said they like to come out for machetes and cooking pots. So they are the ones initating the contact. At least on the river.....that is.

Sure as long as they aren't treated like a zoo exhibit.

Bigfoot is real! Matt Moneymaker said so. Cliff and Bobo agreed with him. :laugh:

and the yeti has moved to the Rockies..

Well one thing is for sure since it is Peru. Before they assimilate those Indians we should ask them if they know anything about Puma-Punku. How did they get shit up to 4000ft above sea level. Who cut those big azz 800 ton stones and drilled those little holes all the way thru those other stones. Then ask them if they are the Children of the Gods and see what they say.

Wonder if any of these Indians are related to the Amarra Indians?
