Uncontacted indians spotted!!!
On October 1, 2007, 21 uncontacted Indians have been spotted over one of the most remote parts of the Peruvian rainforest. They were first seen on the shores of the Las Pierdras river in Peru's south-eastern Amazon. They left their "houses" (if that's what you could call them) on the beach to watch the plane chartered by Peru's Environment Agency, fly by. The second time one of the Agency planes passed by, an Indian woman passed by with arrows and a little boy that was with her was gesturing aggressively. "This is the first time we've seen them" said said Peru's national Indian organization AIDESEP. Survival director Stephen Corry wants the Indians to live with Americans and live like Americans do because he feels like they could have a better life in America.
