An American missionary stationed in Brazil is accused of putting the lives of a previously uncontacted indigenous tribe at risk, government officials have said.
Steve Campbell, a missionary with the Greene Baptist Church in Maine, is being investigated by FUNAI—a Brazilian government body tasked with protecting the interests of indigenous tribes living in the Brazilian Amazon—after he allegedly entered the territory of the Hi-Merimã tribe last month.

The Hi-Merimã tribe is one of a few dozen isolated communities in Brazil that have had almost no contact with the outside world. The tribe, which lives in the state of Amazonas, has previously rejected attempts at contact.

Survival International, an organization advocating for tribal peoples' rights, has reported that Campbell could even be tried for "genocide."
In a statement to Reuters, a FUNAI spokesperson said Campbell's actions represent "a case of rights violation and exposure to risk of death to [an] isolated indigenous population."

“Even if direct contact has not occurred, the probability of transmission of diseases to the isolated is high," the FUNAI spokesperson warned.

Stephen Corry, the director of Survival International, said: "Fundamentalist Christian Americans must be stopped from this primitive urge to contact previously uncontacted tribes."

"It may lead to the martyrdom they seek, but always ends up killing tribespeople," he said.

I wonder if a group of 16 year old tribe members blocked his path.

So Trump is saving more people from terrorism than Obama. I wonder if he even knows that.
