Manu National Park, Peru (NTN24) A British advocacy group released on Tuesday (January 31) rare photos of an isolated tribe living in the Amazon region of southeastern Peru.

According to Survival International, the three photos show a family from the Mashco-Piro tribe and are "the most detailed sightings of uncontacted Indians ever recorded on camera."

The photos were taken near the Manu National Park, where the tribe is believed to live.

Reported sightings of the Indians have been rare in the past, but increasingly more frequent in recent months. Survival International believes the recent activity of the Mashco-Piro could be attributed to illegal logging near the park and low-flying helicopters from nearby oil and gas projects displacing them from their homes.
