Speaking primarily in the eighties, Jaynes felt that no uncontacted tribes remained to be discovered. More recent evidence suggests that some uncontacted tribes do in fact remain, for example in the Papua, New Guinea; the Amazon; and the Andaman Islands (see other posts in this section).

Unfortunately, those studying recently contacted tribes to the best of our knowledge are not familiar with Jaynes's theory and are not asking the right questions. The window of opportunity to study recently contacted tribes from a Jaynesian perspective is rapidly closing.

Take a look at our YouTube playlist for relevant videos and documentaries on uncontacted tribes, including the BBC's "First Contact":

Overflights of remote Colombian rainforest yield first photographic evidence of two uncontacted tribes.

Aerial surveys of a remote area of rainforest along the Colombia-Brazil border have produced the first photographic evidence of uncontacted tribes, according to a conservation group that works to safeguard indigenous territories and culture.

The photos, released by the Amazon Conservation Team (ACT) in conjunction with the Colombian National Park Service, show five long houses or malokas thought to belong to two indigenous groups, the Yuri or Carabayo and Passé, some of the last isolated tribes in the Colombian Amazon. The images provide confirmation that uncontacted communities still exist within the Rio Puré National Park, which protects a million hectares (2.47 million acres) of mostly pristine rainforest between the Caquetá and Putumayo River basins along the Brazilian border.
