River of no return
There is still considerable uncertainty about how explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett died in the Upper Xingu, Brazil, in 1925. Orlando Villas Boas, a strong defender of Indian rights, claimed in 1951 that the chief of the local Kalapalo tribe had confessed to him that the tribe had killed Fawcett. However, members of this tribe now deny that this was the case, claiming that the tribe was betrayed by Villas Boas. One of the key issues in this case is the impact of white men on the tribe's traditional way of life.
