The researchers discovered the tribe in Vale do Javari, an indigenous territory in the part southwest of the State of Amazonas. An official of the Agency told The Associated Press that for years have monitored this jungle tribe, but had never caught it on camera. The official said he did not know the name of the tribe.  The Agency has registered 107 tribes isolated in the Latin America’s largest nation. Although it is occasionally captured video communities, Funai does not make contact with them.  In this note: Brazil tribe isolated indigenous Vale do Javari
