Jururei is a tiny uncontacted Indian tribe numbering 8-10 people living in the Parque Nacional Pakaas Novas inside the Terra Indigena Uru-Eu-Uaw-Uaw in Rondônia State, Brazil.[1] In 2005 their land was invaded by loggers who tried to wipe them out.[2] It is not known how many of the tribespeople were killed in the conflict that followed. When FUNAI officials visited their only village, it was abandoned and huts were destroyed.
