    story here

    Swine flu has hit an isolated tribe of Indians in the Amazon jungle, with seven dying in the last two weeks, Survival International said on Wednesday.

    A further 1,000 members of the Yanomami tribe in Venezuela are believed to have caught the flu, the indigenous peoples rights group said.

    It is feared the flu could sweep through the area and kill many more Yanomami as the Indians have little resistance to introduced diseases.

    About 32,000 Yanomami live in the Venezuela-Brazil border region and form the largest relatively isolated tribe in the Amazon.
    I found this interested. They are isolated and yet they have it.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    If they are so isolated, how does this news get out?
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    Most Yanomami have had fairly frequent contact with outsiders at least by the eighties or maybe the nineties.

    I had an ethnography on the Yanomami as a textbook in college.

    This video is long but is of a club fight which escalated into an axe fight. R-Rated video...

    I figured you would be glad they stayed there and didn't immigrate.

    Maybe they meant smoke instead of cut, a bawaba stick pipe may be the ultimate.
