FYI: We try to leave jargon out of our videos, but if you want to learn more about this topic, here are some handy keywords to get your googling started:
- isolated peoples: peoples living without significant contact with global civilization, either by choice or circumstance
- uncontacted peoples: another term for isolated peoples, most of whom have actually been in some form of contact with global civilization
- forest peoples: indigenous peoples who live in and depend on forests for their livelihoods
- first contact: the first meeting of two cultures previously unaware of one another
- controlled contact: a planned, organized first contact involving health care professionals and cultural translators
- no-contact approach: a policy to leave isolated peoples alone
- Prime Directive: a Star Trek guiding principle prohibiting Starfleet personnel from interfering with the internal development of alien civilizations
- self-determination: the right of a people to freely choose their political, economic, social, and cultural systems without interference
- autonomy: the right or condition of self-government and expression of aspirations free from external control or influence
