The indigenous man, who is estimated to have been around 60 years old, was known as “The Man of the Hole” for his habit of digging and hiding in holes in the ground.

He was the only survivor of an uncontacted tribe whose six other members were killed by land grabbers and farmers.

Choosing to lead a solitary life in the jungle, he had rejected any attempt to contact him.

He is said to have laid traps and fired arrows at anyone who came too close.

Sarah Shenker a campaigner at Survival International, told the Guardian: “Having endured atrocious massacres and land invasions, rejecting contact with outsiders was his best chance of survival.

“He was the last of his tribe, and so that is one more tribe made extinct – not disappeared, as some people say, it’s much more active and genocidal a process than disappearing.”

Back in 2018, he was filmed by a government team.

Survival’s Research and Advocacy Director, Fiona Watson visited the area in 2004 with a government monitoring team and wrote a summary of the visit.

She said: “Imagine living on your own, in complete silence, always on the run, always fearful, invisible to the world.

“This is daily life for one solitary man in the Amazon. He’s the sole survivor of his tribe.

“We don’t know who he is, the name of his tribe or what language he speaks.

“His people were probably massacred by cattle ranchers who are invading the region at breakneck speed.”

Activists and indigenous organisations have campaigned for years to protect his land.

The uncontacted tribes live in extreme isolation in the forest and often fire their bows and arrows at helicopters or planes, fearing contact with outsiders.

Experts believe there are at least 100 uncontacted tribes living in Brazil.

Other groups of uncontacted tribes can be found in Colombia, Peru and Paraguay.
