Primitive Melting Pot of Cultures

Primitive Melting Pot of Cultures

Can you accept people & cultures just the way they are?

I am surrounded by five strata of cultures, from the most primitive on the planet to the more educated in the developing world.

1. No Contact Tribal Group
2. No Contacted that have left and joined another tribal group.
3. Pure Tribal Group.
4. Mestizo of the Jungle Region of Peru
5. Mestizo of the educated sector of Peru

I will write a Travel Tips with the solution

My natural tendency is to ignore brute behavior, which is a subconscious attempt to change the culture. A person changes a culture the moment they enter, and it takes a strict rule of engagement to study one of these primitive cultures.

I have enjoyed my week in the jungles of Peru, I have observed the multiple ways culture fuse together or segregate here in Breu, Peru.

I will return to Breu again with strict rules of engagement.

In this venture, I have learned conclusively that the words uncontested and no contacted tribes are terms used by groups with an agenda. They wish to misrepresent the truth for their own desires, much like the Indians in the USA, the indigenous people here in Peru are just pawns in a game of power and control.

In this area of the world, all stakeholders are aware of the other participants, they voluntarily agree to make contact or avoid contact. The biggest reason there are tribes that wish no contact is because of the difficulty of contact, whether because of transportation problems, or language problems, there is no simple way for one primitive culture to interact with another primitive culture.

The melting pot that exists here is one-step above cave dwellers, this is how all civilizations lived at one time.

I will leave and reenter this primitive culture after I have carefully drawn up rules of engagement that would minimize accidental corruption of data collected.
