Unknown tribes: first contact with civilization

In the Amazon River basin, near the Brazilian-Peruvian border, at the end of March this year, a tribe of Indians was accidentally discovered, which has not yet had contact with civilization. Photo reporter for Reuters - Lunae Parracho - managed to photograph them during a flight in the area of the Xinane River. Anthropologists are confident that this is a new unknown tribe that has not been previously studied or described. See their first contact with civilization.
