Moment last known survivor of Amazonian tribe killed by farmers is captured felling a tree after 22 years alone in the jungle


THE last known survivor of an Amazonian tribe killed by farmers has been filmed felling a tree after 22 years alone in the jungle.

Incredible footage of the indigenous man – believed to be in his 50s – shows him half naked and in good health.

He is said to use a bow and arrow to hunt pigs, birds and monkeys for survival and traps prey in hidden holes filled with sharpened staves of wood.

The Guardian reports how the man has never been filmed so clearly before after he was first discovered in the jungle in 1996.

His face was only filmed for the first time in 1998.

The man is believed to be the only survivor of a group of six killed during an attack by farmers in 1995.

Altair Algayer, who works for Brazilian government agency Funai, said: “He is very well, hunting, maintaining some plantations of papaya, corn.”

He added: “He has good health and a good physical shape doing all those exercises.”

Funai has a strict policy of leaving isolated groups in the region alone.

But the group has watched from a distance since the man was first spotted in 1996.

Fiona Watson works for Survival International, a non-profit group that works to protect indigenous peoples.

She described the footage as “extraordinary”, adding: “The fact he is still alive gives you hope.”

Specialists believe there are 113 uncontacted tribes living in the Brazilian Amazon.

We reported in September last year how police in Brazil investigated claims 10 members of a remote Amazonian tribe were hacked to death by ruthless gold miners out to seize their land.

A complaint was filed with prosecutors in South America after the alleged killers went into a bar and bragged about what they had done.
