This is the moment thugs fly a helicopter over an uncontacted Brazilian tribe and shout insults at them before the indigenous warriors fire arrows back at them. 

The helicopter flew over the settlement of the isolated Moxihatetea tribe in Yanomami territory in northern Brazil on Friday.

As the aircraft hovers at a low altitude above a circular settlement passengers can be heard shouting insults as the tribe members stand in the centre.

The tribe members retaliated by shooting arrows at the helicopter, according to reports.

One of the thugs is said to have called the group a ‘bunch of faggots’ and ‘cannibals’.

They posted the footage online with the title: ‘Cannibal Indians in Roraima,’ but removed it on Monday night after it caused outrage. 

Authorities are investigating and it is not known if the helicopter passengers have been apprehended.

The settlement depicted in the video is a Yanomami yano, a large communal house for several families. 

Each of the square sections of the yano is home to a different family, where they hang their hammocks, maintain fires, and keep food stores.

There have been clashes in the past between the Yanomami and gold miners. 

The Haximu massacre in 1993 saw gold miners kill 16 Yanomami and burn their communal house to the ground. 

In 2016, extraordinary aerial shots captured members of the Moxihatetea outside their settlement.

The group could be seen leaning on sticks as they looked up at the aircraft.
