More uncontacted tribes worldwide

Enough with sports illis for now, here's something more of a news. A qoute from the article itself:

It was once thought that all Yanomami Indians of the Brazilian Amazon had been contacted during the latter half of the 20th century, after which almost a fifth of their people died from diseases carried by gold-miners. Now, days after aerial photographs and footage of a threatened tribe living in the Brazilian rainforest on the border with Peru were published by Survival International, the organisation has revealed that there is a group of uncontacted Yanomami still living in Roraima state, northern Brazil.
I love this illustration but when it was placed on the page, it looked so boxed and unrelated to the text. It's called better 'planning', I guess. I lacked that. :|
