AMAZING drone footage has captured a mysterious uncontacted tribe living deep in the Brazilian jungle for the first time ever.

The incredible video was shot from high above a vast area of dense Amazon rainforest in the far west of northern Brazil.

The images show a group of 16 indigenous people from a tribe which, according to the Brazilian agency for native tribes, Funai, has never had any contact with the outside world.

In a clearing in the forest, the drone filmed a tribesman walking with a bow and arrow, an ancestral long house known as a maloca, and a plantation of what is believed to be manioc.
