‘World’s Loneliest Man’ Found Dead in Brazil

Published

loneliest man

A tribesman dubbed ‘the loneliest man in the world’ after living in isolation for 26 years has died in the Brazilian rainforest.

Land grabbers and cattle ranchers had completely wiped out the rest of his tribe in several attacks since the 1970s, leaving him to live out the rest of his days on his own. The hermit shunned all contact with the outside world although authorities kept an eye on him and occasionally left him supplies.

The man, who was also known as the ‘Man of the Hole’ for constructing deep holes to trap animals and hide in, lived deep in the Amazon in Rondonia state.
Fiona Watson, researcher and advocacy director for Survival International, said: ‘No outsider knew this man’s name, or even very much about his tribe – and with his death the genocide of his people is complete.’

‘For this was indeed a genocide – the deliberate wiping out of an entire people by cattle ranchers hungry for land and wealth.’
His body was found lying in a hammock by Funai, the indigenous affairs agency, on Tuesday. There were not any signs of struggle or violence or any indication that others were present.
Police said he died of natural causes but his body will undergo a forensic examination.

Whenever people tried to make contact with the tribesman after he was first discovered in 1996, he normally fled despite their gifts of seeds or tools.
On the rare moments officials approached him, he fled into his thatched hut and refused to utter a word, and once fired an arrow at a Funai official, puncturing his lung.

After the near-fatal incident, officials decided he would be better off living out his days alone in the forest, where he dug traps to catch wild animals, hunted with bamboo arrows, gathered fruits and wild honey and planted small garden plots.
Since 1987, it has been government policy to avoid forcing contact on isolated tribal populations, though exceptions can be made if a tribe faces imminent peril, when peaceful contact appears to be the only way to assure its survival.

In 2018, footage shot by Brazilian government officials was released, showing the man using a hand-made axe to chop down a tree near his hut.
Funai said in a newspost: ‘In the 1980s, disorderly colonisation, the establishment of farms and illegal logging in [the Rondonia region] led to repeated attacks on the isolated indigenous peoples who had lived there until then, in a constant process of expulsion from their lands and death.
‘After the last farmer attack in late 1995, the group that was probably already small – from reports, the local staff believed [it] to be six people – became one person. The guilty were never punished.’

Officials did not know his name or the name of his tribe, but worked to extend the area of his jungle home to 8,070 hectares so he could maintain his lifestyle.
An indigenous reserve known as Tanara was set up in the 1990s as part of moves to protect his territory. He spent his time felling trees, hunting animals to eat and walked around half-naked covered only by a loin cloth.

Funai, who works to protect the rights of indigenous people and isolated groups, claims there are 113 uncontacted tribes in the Brazilian Amazon, 27 of which they have confirmed sightings of.
Survival International says there may be as many as 300 uncontacted Indians living in the Massacó territory in Rondonia.
It is thought many tribes have chosen to avoid contact based on previous encounters which have resulted in the destruction of their forest homes.

Experts say tribes have been known to fire arrows at outsiders or aircraft or simply retreat deeper in to the rainforest. However, other uncontacted groups are facing extinction with no more than a handful of individuals left, the group says.

They are coming under increasing threat from infrastructure and road building projects and are increasingly abandoning their territory to avoid the noise and air pollution that comes with it.
Having avoided contact with the outside world, tribes are vulnerable to diseases like flu or even the common cold.
Tiny clusters living mainly in Rondonia, Mato Grosso and Maranhão states ‘are the survivors of brutal land grabs when they were targeted and murdered by loggers, ranchers, and others’, according to the organisation, which works to protect tribal peoples’ rights.

Survival International said: ‘The uncontacted peoples of Brazil must be protected and their land rights recognised before they, along with the forests they depend on, vanish forever.’The Amazon rain forest spans 2,100,000 square miles with huge areas still thought to remain unexplored.
In 2016, extraordinary photographs taken from a helicopter flying over the Amazonian jungle showed members of one of the world’s last uncontacted tribespeople.
When the helicopter first appeared low overhead, they were panic-stricken — fleeing from their thatched shelters in a clearing to hide under the foliage.
Then the men took courage and fired volleys of primitive arrows at the noisy interloper.

The Indians exist in isolated nomadic groups in the depths of the Brazilian rainforest near the Peruvian border.
‘To think that in the 21st century, there are still people who have no contact with civilisation, living like their ancestors did 20,000 years ago — it’s a powerful emotion,’ Photographer Ricardo Stuckert told National Geographic magazine.

In 2008, an incredible set of pictures emerged of tribesmen hurling spears and firing bow and arrows at an aircraft buzzing overhead.
Their skin was painted bright red, heads partially shaved, arrows drawn back in the longbows and aimed square at the plane.

    I wonder if at all what we have is civilization. Come to think of it “civilization” has been in the forefront of taking away a livelihood from these people.
    When are we as “civilization” going to learn to mind our own business and leave the tribes alone?

It marks the duo’s first full-length LP since 2006 and thirty-first original album overall. Get Make Me Say It Again, Girl THE ALBUM—HERE.

 

To celebrate the arrival of the record, the group shared the music video for the new single “The Plug” [feat. 2 Chainz].

The accompanying visual translates this vibe seamlessly to the screen.

 

If you need love, these gentlemen have got “The Plug”…

 

They originally set the stage for the record with a recreation of The Isley Brothers classic 1975 love ballad, “Make Me Say It Again, Girl,” joined by none other than Beyoncé.

Make Me Say It Again, Girl THE ALBUM places the pair’s classic sound in the spotlight for a whole new era. Whether it be the cinematic scope of “Long Voyage Home” or R&B escapism of “Disappear,” they lean into the hallmarks of their signature style with undeniable energy. They’ve also brought a few friends—both old and new—along for the ride. El Debarge and Earth, Wind & Fire team up with The Isley Brothers for the generational banger “There’ll Never Be,” while Rick Ross flexes with pure lyrical fire during “Biggest Bosses.” Elsewhere, Quavo and Takeoff ignite the irresistible and infectious “Keys To My Mind.”
