World is full of “Un-Contacted” People

The world is full of various people. People belonging to different ethnicities, different culture, different caste, etc. In this modern era, everyone is connected through one social medium or the other. But there are people who still don’t fall into this bracket of connected and contacted people. There is a minimum of 100 uncontacted tribes of native people, who are living their lives as they used to years before. With no modern amenities and no social connection, these people can not even communicate with the civilized people, because of their language barrier.Unfortunately, these people always face the danger of getting extinct, due to various reasons such as attacks on them by other people, sabotaging their surroundings etc. When one indigenous man came in contact with some people in the forest, his life changed… 

The “Hawk” of Awa

Karapiru belonged to a group of an indigenous Awa tribe, who has its native in northeastern Brazil. The meaning of his name, in his language, means “Hawk.”Since ages, The Awa tribe was living in the Maranhao state of Brazil. But they refer this place as “Harakwa” which means “the place that we know.” 

Living in the rainforest for ages

The people of Awa tribe were living together in this part of the Brazilian rainforest, since a long time. The type of food they like to eat mostly includes nuts, fruits, honey, wild pigs, tapirs, and monkeys. But from past few years, their life has been under a constant threat from various factors.

The Most Threatened Tribe On Earth

The Awa people are on the top of the list of territorial destruction. They are always on the targets of ranchers, loggers, and settlers who are invading their territories for their personal gains. The attacks on them are on a rise and these people are killed brutally, with no faults of theirs. According to a recent report, less than 100 Awas are left. 

Brutal Firing

Karapiru and his family were having a leisure time together when some armed men interrupted them. The family had no clue what were they doing there and for what purpose they were loaded with arms. Without uttering a single word, they started firing ruthlessly on Karapiru’s family. 

Tried to escape

The family members tried to escape from the spot. Karapiru sprinted towards the trees to get some cover, but a bullet struck his lower back. He was lucky enough that he didn’t die. However, all other members of his family were killed in the rampage. The members who were killed included his son, daughter, wife, mother and his brothers.
