Yup. They have found some on the Preuvian/Brazil border.

This could be one good find as they are the last tribes to be contacted.

I was under the impression that the tribe wouldn't be contacted; that the team who discovered them did a fly-by looking for groups to prove they existed in the area because other groups have been pressurising the government to remove restrictions on preserving the area. There's evidently been some skepticism as to whether any such tribes existed, so the team went out to prove it to ensure their continued protection and survival in isolation.

The part I bolded is exactly what makes me think this discovery is going to turn out to be nothing more than a hoax, just like the Tasaday were.

I wondered that too. Which puts them in a catch 22 situation. In order to prove that they are a legitimate "lost tribe" they will have to be contacted in some way. Or at the very least more long term fly overs. At that point how will they be considered? Will the government really leave them alone or will they decide to do something else "In their best interest."?

Interesting.
