As you might have guessed there are already evangelists salivating at the thought of "Spreading God's Word" to the newly discovered native group in Brazil. Here is a post in it's entirety from Jesus Christology blog. (Parenthetic statements are entirely the work of this wackjob, not me)

Attention Christian Missionaries: New People Group Discovered In Amazon!
Posted by Job on May 30, 2008

RIO DE JANEIRO - Amazon Indians from one of the world’s last uncontacted tribes have been photographed from the air, with striking images released on Thursday showing them painted bright red and brandishing bows and arrows. The photographs of the tribe near the border between Brazil and Peru are rare evidence that such groups exist. A Brazilian official involved in the expedition said many of them are in increasing danger from illegal logging.

“What is happening in this region is a monumental crime against the natural world (please note animist earth worship mentality here, or perhaps eastern Gaia worship), the tribes, the fauna and is further testimony to the complete irrationality with which we, the ‘civilized’ ones, treat the world,” Jose Carlos Meirelles was quoted as saying in a statement by the Survival International group (not saying that I AGREE with destroying the environment incidentally; an excellent CHRISTIAN argument can be made against it, especially when the motive is GREED for money and power).

One of the pictures, which can be seen on Survival International’s Web site (, shows two Indian men covered in bright red pigment poised to fire arrows at the aircraft while another Indian looks on. Another photo shows about 15 Indians near thatched huts, some of them also preparing to fire arrows at the aircraft.

“The world needs to wake up to this, and ensure that their territory is protected in accordance with international law. Otherwise, they will soon be made extinct,” said Stephen Corry, the director of Survival International, which supports tribal people around the world. Of more than 100 uncontacted tribes worldwide, more than half live in either Brazil or Peru, Survival International says. It says all are in grave danger of being forced off their land, killed and ravaged by new diseases.

Here is yet another whackjob a Vision Baptist Church (Emphasis is mine this time, what an uncaring nutjob!) :

The secular world is concerned for preserving their isolation so that they can follow their evolutionary instincts, I suppose. They do need the gospel and I am very glad that God’s people are concerned to get the gospel to them.

Here is another "christian" comment:
For most believers unreached typically means known groups that have not been reached with the Gospel. This brings unreached to a new level. This tribe is one of the view in the world who have untouched by the civilized world. Who will take up the challenge?

Here is an example of some christians with at least a modicum of compasssion and sense about it all.

Unfortunately there is even a mission set up to minister to people just like this (Although admittedly this is an extreme case even for them.

And here is an example of what Christians are currently doing mission-wise in the Amazon. It will only be a matter of time before they are foisting their "audio bible" onto these people in a related language.
