Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 21, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-41 White-skinned Indians roam jungle Flooded out Residents of a Dacca suburb walk single file down a submerged street in search of higher ground as flood waters forced them from their homes recently. Month-long flooding has ruined millions of dollars worth of crops in Bangladesh and neighboring India, affecting over 40 million persons.

He told the government's National Indian Foundation (FUNAI) here that native in- terpreters from other tribes had been unable to understand the language spoken by the Ipixuna Indians. Brazil's Indians, now esti- mated to total only are dark-skinned, dark-eyed and b ack-haired, like all Amerindian peoples. But ancient legends told of indigenous tribes of white In- dians in the Amazon jungle and referred to the mythical arrival of blonde Nordic sail- ors on Brazil's shores long be- fore Columbus discovered America More scientifically based speculation holds that any fair-skinned Indians that might exist are the product of contact with earlier white set- tlers, or even of white babies kidnapped by Indians. This would be substantiated by one of the more recent of Alves' messages which spoke of several fair-skinned, green- eyed Indians encountered among a larger group of traditionally dark tribesmen The latest reports of white- Indians began coming in to Brasilia in April when Alves heard vague allusions to them from other tribes in the Ipi- xuna area. After scouring the region for a month he reported locat- ing a group of eight fair- skinned, blue-eyed Indians bathing in a river. Aerial reconnaissance in June located three villages with a total of 60 malocas straw huts housing an es- timated 320 tribesmen. Alves and his expedition im- mediately set out for the area, 2Vz days upstream by canoe and a further five days on foot through the jungle from FUNAI's forward post of Altamira on the Xmgu By the middle of July he re- ported meeting a group of 28 Indians, "10 of whom have fair skin, chestnut-brown hair and green eyes." They were all naked and some had painted their bodies. Their ear-lobes were pierced and full of ornaments. The Indians themselves made the first move in ap- proaching the expedition's camp On the first day two Indians came and Alves gave them gifts On the next day three more Indians entered the camp for more gifts such as necklaces, beads, scissors and knives. Finally 28 Indians came and took with them not only all the remaining gifts but also much of the expedition's equipment, including axes, clothes and anything else that could be carried The tnbesnen have so far blocked all attempts by the expedition to move through the jungle in the direction of the first village. But the fact' that some of them ap- proached the camp with women and children indicates that they are friendly. The expedition decided to stay where it was in the hope that the Indians will even- tually gam confidence and in- vite one uf them into the village although with other tribes it has sometimes taken years before such an invita- Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE Multicocal Lens (MULTILUX) OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. lion is forthcoming Anthropologist Heho Rocha of FUNAI s Amazonic affairs committee said fresh gifts would be sent to the ex- pedition's no axes "We must introduce such tools among these Indians win the greatest care and only gradually to avoid the disintegration of their cus- toms." he said. FUNAI officials said the tair-skmned tribesmen might be descendants of Dutch set- tlers who intermarried with Indians hundreds of years ago They might also be the more recent product of white men who have lived in Indian villages or of Indian women who have lived outside their village, had children by white men and then returned with the children to the tribe.
