i dont think they have very complex languages as they have little use for most of the words we use, i heard of a tribe that only had words for the numbers 1 to 3 as they never needed to communicate high numbers.

Kind of a shame they have been found, kind of makes me think that they will just come into the modern world, sure they may not have discovered it and possibly missing out. BUT! You can't miss what you haven't had /nods. Kind of like the Americans and the Natives.

I wish people never bothered tribes and just let them be. They probably live happier than anyone else.

Which tribe are you going to learn from. If you don't have one in mind, I suggest the Pirahã. They have no religion or anything and yet they can see spirits and stuff. They are in touch to who they are.

I remember back in the 70's a Tribe was found in the Phillipines, they had never met anyone outside and even lived through WW2 without getting bombed. They kept them secret for some time as they didn't want to screw them up. But alas it was a hoax, a good one, they found them sometime later wearing t-shirts and smoking cigareetes with filters. I don't remember their name as this is from memory. I hope this isn't a hoax and I hope everyone leaves them alone.

Fascinating until some fool has to go poking around and carry infectious disease that the tribe will likely be wiped out from.

That's Right! They need mobile phones, a bible, credit cards, drugs, sugar, vaccines, processed food, and everything else the modern world can give them to be just like everyone else. NOT! Agreed, Leave them alone! I wonder if this is the conversation aliens have when thinking about contacting us?
