I was surprised to read on https://youtu.be/4_k5HuDTk3Q?t=2795 (Uncontacted Tribes documentary):

enter image description here

The individual in the picture is part of an Amazonian tribe that was contacted a few months/years before the shooting was made

Do humans have a natural tendency of feeling ashamed when not wearing clothes?

I couldn't tell whether the statement was made as a result of his contacts with clothed people.

    $\begingroup$ If the individual pictured and quoted is an "Amazonian tribe that was contacted a few months/years before the shooting" then it is a misrepresentation that these tribe members were uncontacted. And, surely, if they are ashamed, would they not cover up? $\endgroup$ Dec 31, 2020 at 10:32
  • $\begingroup$ @ChrisRogers If you watch the documentary, you'll see that it took a few months between the first contact and this interview. No idea regarding why not wear something. Maybe too difficult to fabricate something in the jungle that is convenient to wear? $\endgroup$ Dec 31, 2020 at 10:37
  • $\begingroup$ @FranckDernoncourt I find that difficult to believe considering I have seen documentaries showing members of different tribes (who have had influence from Western clothed people) using large leaves, gourds, animal skin etc. $\endgroup$ Dec 31, 2020 at 10:42
  • $\begingroup$ @ChrisRogers fair point, not sure what's going on. $\endgroup$ Dec 31, 2020 at 10:46
