Amazon tribes connected to Starlink: locals immediately hooked on pornography and social networks

Secluded tribes’in the Amazon’connected to the Internet, but nothing good came of it it didn't work out Community elders now complain that tribal members have become addicted to social media and pornography sites. And they stopped living like their parents and grandfathers.

At present, the youth of this tribe want to live “like white people”. This is reported by The New York Post.

The Brazilian Marubo tribe, which has 2,000 people, “met” for the first time nine months ago. with the Internet thanks to the Starlink service. This is Elon Musk's project.

However, not everything went well. At present, the elders of the tribe report that at first everyone was satisfied, but over time, “the youth has become lazy because of the Internet, they are learning to live “like white people”. This is very disturbing to the elders, who were brought up in the traditional values ​​of the tribe. 

Note that the Marubo are wild people, one of those who are also called “non-contact tribes”. However, they recently contacted each other. At the same time, the standards of decency in the tribe have now changed, and everything is via the Internet. 

Previously, the Marubo did not even kiss their women in public. This was considered indecent behavior. Now Marubo's youth sit in group chats on social networks and actively spread pornography among themselves. As a result, elders say the youths have started “more aggressive sexual behavior” than before. 

In addition, Aboriginal people have started to communicate less with their families, preferring their gadgets and chats. The tribe's people have become so dependent on the benefits of civilization that Marubo leaders, fearing that oral history and culture may be lost forever, have limited internet access to two hours each morning, five hours each evening and all day every Sunday.&nbsp ;

But even this does not help much yet, the elders complain. Young people have already “tried out” new products and do not want to give them up.
