Survival International, a London based organization that advocates for tribal people worldwide, has denied that photos taken of red-painted Amazon Indians aiming arrows at a helicopter near the Brazil-Peru border are a hoax. A "lost" tribe is different from an "uncontacted" one. Because the Brazilian government has been aware of this tribe for over 20 years, it falls in the second category. In fact, the government has mandated measures that protect the tribe's lifestyle.
