They look very peaceful and surprised at the same time. I was getting worried that one of them is going to attack using his stone hammer at one point! But they just focused more on exploring the topic than being hostile! I wonder that had something to do with the environment they live in!

My father actually worked in a gold/copper mine in Papua New Guinea in the early 80's with a tribe that made first contact in the mid 70's.  I assume they must be from the same nation of tribes.  He brought back some amazing stories.  I can't help but wonder who that guy in the video is who made the first physical contact - what an incredible experience.
