    The last to make contact were the [Pintupi nine](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pintupi_Nine) in 1984

    Read this thing a couple of years back about first contact with, I think, indigenous Australians…the contacted group didn’t go tell other groups it knew of about the modern Australians and their culture and technology–there was some discussion to the effect that maybe there was some confusion about whether or not initiating contact would be a good thing. The suggestion, as I recall, was that ultimately, the modern and indigenous Australians agreed that it would be better not to initiate contact, but to let it happen more…what? naturally? organically? or not at all. Years later when one of the other groups finally stumbled upon their old pals they were like “WTF dudes? You left us out there eating bugs for like a decade and didn’t tell us about modern technology, easy access to water, vaccinations, modern clothing and housing??? WTF is wrong with you you assholes?”

    Netflix has a documentary called First Contact. If you found this one interesting – you’ll like it, too.

    It shows even more modern first contacts in Brazil.

    Some scientist thought they had no knowledge of advanced civilization but they did. Stealing clothes from rural villages became a big fear due to disease.

    Brazil has a government organization aimed at protecting these people but deforestation is a major risk for them.

    Anyone else think it’s interesting to see the words they didn’t have in their native language? Like “naked” and “holy”

    The children in the archival footage appear to have Kwashiorkor (the pot belly from protein malnutrition) and I wonder if this was common with their lifestyle, or if it is an effect of European presence on their hunter-gatherer migrations and food sources.

    Actually, it was until the 80s Aboriginies were first coming into contact with white people. The very last known group were a mob called the Pintupi Nine who walked out of the desert in 1984, a few of them who were children at the time are still alive.

    Australia’s Indigenous culture is amazing. Many of their dream time stories talk about natural events that occurred tens of thousands of years ago…

    Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

    “Stumpy Brown” is a name that sounds like a literal translation from her native toungue. You know, like “Natsumi” is japanese for summer fruit. Very interesting.

    Im not discriminating or anything, but do they have genes closer to our ancestors? Did they not evolve like we did? Seems logical since they didnt mix race with anyone else

    > We were baptised with holy water – no more sin. We became Christians all the way.

    Their are tribes in brazil that still haven’t been contacted. It is sad tho bc usually their first contact is a group of dickheads shooting them all with guns to make way for loggers.

    I really wish that folks would just indigenous people alone already. Imagine you live your life in relative peace for generations and all of a sudden some strangers come and continue to harass you. No doubt you wouldn’t like it either.

This vido has some really good stuff about the origins of the first Australians. It’s a little long, but the first 10m or so is about pre colonial Australia.

Here’s a clip where he uses “mount improbable,” instead of plateaus or paths. But I think it illustrates the idea of species getting “hung up” in evolution quite well. Simple though…
