Arch Im already and have looked into lanaguages and whcih tribe specfically, and no I don't need to know their language a few basic things, but decent enough to get around, they can understand someone miming lol..they don't talk about politics and a lot of other crap..so I should catch on somewhat fast, for the fact I've studied other langauges as well. I will think around 6 months what I want to do, at least the first time, yes I want to do that because I want to learn from them ect..and you just can't get that here in the US..at least not what part Im in haha

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.

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.

Papua New Guinea is really an interesting place, so many new species of animals are being discovered there, and now a new tribe....fascinating island! Fascinating until some fool has to go poking around and carry infectious disease that the tribe will likely be wiped out from.

why do i get the feeling some church in texas is booking flights there as we speak? 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?
