  1. What a gentle people they seem to be. This is a beautiful video! I wonder if they all have cell phones today. :)

  2. O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. (Holy Quran; chapter 49, verse 13)

  3. the magic of today is the technology of tomorrow… this is what came to mind when i saw those people’s reactions

  4. i am moved and touched by how simple and innocent their lives were. where are they now, what have happened to them after almost 40 years the video was taken? had their initial contact with the white man intrigued them to go outside of their own world and see what’s out there? is their tribe still existing? or just like tribes anywhere in the world, their population is dwindling because of diseases, modernization’s encroachment into their natural habitat, and the lure of our so-called civilization? i just hope that the man’s exploration and reason for being there was a benevolent one.

  5. Damn you! The governments of USA Canada Australia and EU. You and your ”empires”. You are the masterminds behind of the chaotic and destabilized world we live in today. You are the shame of the human history. I am disgusted with all the lies you tell to us for your dirty and immoral purposes. Life wasn’t meant to be so stressful and ugly as it is today.

  6. This is how religion gets started
