A moment of Nukak-Maku monkey zen...

More than 80 Nukak-Makus say they were displaced from the jungle by rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. Since time immemorial, the Nukak-Maku roamed the jungles of southeast Colombia, hunting game with blow guns and gathering berries, oblivious of the modern world and it of them. Now, experts say, Colombia's last nomadic tribe has been pushed to the brink of extinction. (AP Photo/Fernando Vergara)
