Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
22 - THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID - Tuesday, January 26, 1971 White-skinned Indians found in Brazil RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -E t h n o 1 ogists accompanying builders of Brazil's lYans-Ama-zon Highway have discovered a tribe of white - skinned, red-haired Indians, the newspaper Jornal do Brasil reports. The Indians, called Lower As-surinis because they live south of the route of the highway, also have ear lobes, a characteristic missing in other tribes, the report says. Based on a report submitted by the ethnologists to the National Indian Foundation, the newspaper's account says two other new Indian tribes, the Pa-hakanas and the Araras, also have been encountered. The Pa-hakanas had a complex and efficient warning system against enemies, the report said. The Assurinis proved the most interesting find so far, the report says. The village, with 8 to 120 members, is located on the banks of the Bacaja River, but it is thought there might bo other Assurini villages in the area 250 miles south of Manaus, the Amazon state capital. The males were described as short but stout, and they wore loincloths, which also is not common in other Indian tribes. No females were seen by the ethnologists, who said they believed the women and children had been kept inside while contact was being made with a few males. Interpreters had trouble communicating with the Assurinis, whose language was not a branch of the traditional Indian dialects of the region. PRACTISE FARMING Some ceramic objects were seen, and the tribe carried out some form of primitive farming. Most other tribes are hunters. The Pahakanas had been encountered about four years ago, but had since moved to a site south of the Trans - Amazon Highway after clashes with white settlers. They were found to have developed a complex warning system against approaching outsiders, consisting of well - distributed outposts around their village. Inside each of the watching posts, which were strongly built but blended in with the surrounding vegetation, sat four to five Indians, armed with bows and arrows and spears, The experts observed that the Pahakanas' system of disposing of the dead consisted in leaving the dead person suspended horizontally above the ground inside a specially-built little house. The Araras were said to be very dark and relatively tall. Their village had only three large abodes. The Araras also were farmers. There have been no clashes between Indians and workers on the Trans-Amazon road. KITTEN SMITTEN - Angel, a Doberman Pinscher proves adoptive mothers can be just as devoted as natural ones. Angel had a false pregnancy at Calgary and was still waiting for her puppies to arrive when Mingo, a Siamese kitten, was acquired. Now, Angel nurses the kitten and carries it about in her mouth.
