New Video of Lost Amazon Tribe Captures “F*** Trump”

(2018-08-24) — Video shot from a drone, showing a previously-unknown tribe isolated deep in the Amazon jungle, captured what appears to be a formation of stones in the dirt, spelling out in large letters “F*** Trump.” The tribe has had no known contact with the outside world, according to Funai, the Brazilian government agency that mounted the jungle expedition.

Linguists do yet know what the symbols signify, nor why asterisks were used to partially disguise the message, which appears in a jungle clearing in letters large enough to be seen from the International Space Station.

The video also shows dugout canoes made of tree trunks, a thatched hut, and nearly-naked tribesmen wielding primitive hand-made spears and bows. Experts said the civilization apparently survives with tools made from sticks and stones tied together.

“It’s startling to discover that this prehistoric tribe has some form of written language,” said a Funai spokesman. “Even more fascinating is their apparent expectation that someone might read their message, or care.”

Leaders of the expedition dubbed the tribesmen “Proto-Tweeter,” then departed the region, leaving them undisturbed.

On “Columbus Day,” Seattle Gives Town Back to Tribes

Seattle returns land to native tribes

Seattle residents cheerfully flee their city aboard Segways after the town council deeded the municipal land back to the indigenous tribes, to whom it rightfully belongs.

(2014-10-12) — After the Seattle, Washington, city council voted to rename the traditional Columbus Day holiday as “Indigenous Peoples’ Day,” the legislative body immediately began the process of returning all of the land within the city limits to the descendants of the native peoples who once inhabited the territory.

“Starting with Christopher Columbus, the invading European hordes stole the land of these gentle, peace-loving native peoples, whose ancestors have dwelt here since they were single-cell microscopic animals,” said an unnamed council spokesman. “We stole their land. It’s as wrong today as it was then, and we’ve never made reparations for this crime…until now.”

The 84-square-mile tract will now be divided up among the tribal governments of the Lummi, Nooksack, Tulalip, Sauk-Suiattle, Swinomish, Puyallup, and Colville peoples, as well as 22 other tribes in the region.

Bus stations, airports, and automobile charging stations were overwhelmed with the crowds of Seattle residents eager to fulfill the demands of social justice, in some cases abandoning their homes without even packing their belongings.

“This is the ideal way to atone for the wickedness we have enabled with our previous celebrations of Columbus Day,” said one Seattle man, headed inland aboard his Segway. “I don’t know where I’ll go now, but that’s hashtag first-world problem.”
