Why was the Amazonian tribe massacred by loggers?



  1. 0 Votes

    In the 1980’s farmers and loggers were invited to explore the region of Brazil where the Amazonian tribes resided. The tribes land was protected under the Brazilian constitution, however, these farmers and loggers wanted to build on the land. These tribes were uncontacted, and the frontiersmen realized that the only way to keep the government from knowing about the tribes protecting the land was to wipe them off the map. Around 1990, slews of the tribe were massacred, and only seven of them escaped; to this day there are only five remaining members, and are too old or unable to reproduce, so the tribe will inevitably become extinct.
