You may have seen the pictures, but the BBC has released some amazing new video of one of the world’s last uncontacted tribes in the Amazon.

They are believed to be Panoa Indians — and yes, they are the same isolated group the media reported on some two years ago. Of the world’s 100 or so uncontacted tribes, most live in the Amazon.

This particular group has been monitored from a distance (read: air) by Brazil’s National Indian Foundation, a government agency charged with handling the nation’s indigenous communities. Concern has been rising over illegal logging in the area, making chance encounters with the tribe all the more likely if action isn’t taken.

And I’m happy to say that something is actually being done this time. The UK Guardian is reporting that the Peruvian Foreign Minister has announced that steps will be taken to immediately work with Brazil to stop the loggers entering the tribe’s territory along the joint border. “We will establish contact with Brazil’s FUNAI institute [National Indian Foundation] … to preserve these peoples and avoid the incursion of illegal loggers and the depredation of the Amazon,” said the government.

Check out the incredible video after the jump below!
