THE STAR Johannesburg - 1935, July 29
In 1935 a “Lost Village” has been sighted by the pilot of a passing air liner on the northern spurs of the Andes mountains in Colombia. Capt. Hans Hoffmann, chief pilot of the “Scadta” (Colombia-German Air Transport Company) sighted eight houses while he was flying between Barranquilla and Bogota. The land in the vicinity shows no traces of cultivation and the inhabitants of the village would live either by hunting or fishing. No trace of the village can be found on any map.

In 2012 aerial surveys yielded the first photographic evidence of two uncontacted tribes in a remote Colombian rainforest was yielded by. Photos by the Amazon Conservation Team showed 5 long houses apparently belonging to the Yuri or Carabayo and Passé – some of the last isolated tribes in the Colombian Amazon.
