There’s something inspiring, in a way, about the idea of these pre-industrial civilizations hidden from the eyes of modern society, lost in the jungles and remote islands of the world. There’s a grand tale, an epic to be sure, woven in that mysterious history.
What would it be like to be the first of these lost tribes to come in contact with a greater world that is both magical and barbaric – so advanced and yet, from your cultural perspective, so backwards and so fallen. This is the stuff of deep mythology and epic tales. This is basic Hero’s Journey stuff, the thread of which flows through so much of our story-telling.
