Amazon Brazilian tribe The world is developing fast. Indigenous way of life is fairly almost gone for most remote tribes around the globe.

They will remain fairly untouched and isolated forever. Meanwhile, some other tribes in the Brazilian rain forest are trying to survive in a way that they need to find a relation between the past – their present – and the future.
