A Photographer, named Ricardo Stuckert was flying in a helicopter when he had to change his route due to a storm. This unexpected change led him to capture amazing photos of a remote tribe in the rainforest. The tribe is located in Brazil’s Acre state, near the border with Peru.
The area is known for its strict protection of the forests and the indigenous people who live there. The photographs show a small group of people wearing simple clothes, carrying weapons, and with body paint. During the encounter, one man even threw his spear towards the helicopter.
Experts believe that this is the same tribe that gained worldwide attention in 2008 when photos showed them in red body paint and launching arrows at a low-flying airplane. It is believed that the tribe moves around every few years. Stuckert expressed his powerful emotions, comparing himself to a painter from the past, as he witnessed people living without contact with modern civilization, just like their ancestors did thousands of years ago.
