Video released for this first time this week by Brazil's Indian Foundation shows rare images of a so-called uncontacted indigenous man who is believed to be the last surviving member of his tribe.The shaky images taken from a distance through foliage show a man chopping down a tree. The video's release followed a press report that noted there existed only one image of the man, captured by a documentary filmmaker in the 1990s in which the man's face was hidden behind foliage.Altair Algayer, coordinator of the team that monitors the man, said the foundation was reluctant to release the video because it could not ask for the man's consent. The Indian Foundation has been monitoring the man since 1996, when it found him already living alone in the forest in Rondonia state.
