What could be more fascinating…

…than finding a tribe of people that may have never had contact with the rest of the world? Though taken with this story, which broke last week from Brazil, I was just as troubled that we were hearing it at all, concerned that this remaining bit of wildness would be corrupted by “civilized” contact. Or that perhaps, if these people had opted out of mainstream society, their wishes would be compromised by the media attention. But why listen to what I have to say about it. Take a gander instead at this ABCNews Online story on the discovery which quotes Vanderbilt anthropologist (and cannibalism scholar! not that has anything to do with it! but still!) Beth Conklin.
