W e live in a world of technology, a vast world that is interconnected in a great variety of ways—through the internet, cell phones, television, radio, oral history, and the printed word.

They range from peoples who are fully assimilated into the neighboring civilization to a few tribes that are still completely wild.

Each of the tribes live in the world’s largest jungles, and each tribe has been chosen because of its unique and interesting history. The main tribes we will discuss include the Brazilian Amazon region’s Acre Tribes, Papua
