Awa tribe members look quite similar to modern people.

'We hope everyone in the world will help protect our lives and the wild forest in Amazon'.

The Awa tribe is said to have only 80 people left, living mainly in the Maranhão region of Brazil. They were great hunters for centuries, using arrows and spears to hunt wild animals. They also live by picking fruit and vegetable honey.

Awa tribe members are one of the few people who have never contacted the outside world. But they are often threatened by poachers, deforestation.

Many bloody engagements occurred, causing both criminals and tribal members to shed blood.

Tainaky Tenetehar, Guajajara tribe member once said on National Geographic: 'Who will fight for the original tribes, if not ourselves?'

It is estimated that there are only 80 primitive Awa tribes still living.

'Those who deforest, poaching constantly invade. They want to drive us away to exploit huge resources. Many tribal members had to move to other places. '

The International Survival Organization says video is evidence that the Awa people still exist.'Deforesters have killed many tribal members, forcing others to leave familiar habitats , ' said the director of the organization, Stephen Corry.
