That’s a satellite photo of 31 square miles of the Brazilian Amazon reserved for one man. No trespassing, no development. He’s the last of his tribe, and he has never had contact with the outside world. Ever.
One of the best stories of the year, in our humble opinion.
(Thanks to Longreads for highlighting it!)
Wow. Can you even begin to imagine what it’s like for this man? To be the last of his tribe, his people, and to know it?
It may have taken thousands of years of unnecessarily violent massacres and genocides to reach Brazil’s approach to this man and the few remaining “uncontacted” tribes but, at least, change is happening.
