The lost Marubo tribe of Brazil. The Amazonian Indigenous reserve of Vale do Javeri, Brasil. The Javari Valley reserve, which was set up in 1998, is home to 6,000 indigenous people from eight tribes, who share its dense, hilly forests and sinuous rivers with 16 isolated groups. Indigenous leaders say the "isolados", they are known, they are known, with heavily polluting gold mining barges to rivers to its east, cattle ranchers encroaching on its southern borders, and commercial fishing gangs venturing deep into its center. Keeping tabs on their wellbeing is vital. Although since 1987, Pereira pore over reported sightings, satellite images, photos from planes used for monitoring. Expeditions like this one - which Guardian reporters have been given rare permission to join following an invitation from the Javari Valley Indigenous Association, Univaja - provide invaluable intelligence. The nine-man team travelled around 950km by boat and hiked to Marubo villagers of isolated people near a tiny, remote hamlet called São Joaquim deep inside the reserve. In 2015 the village moved location, concerned by repeated visits from isolados.
