Actually, there still are some. Not many, but a few. I will see if I can dig up some info. I saw a program within the past few years of a researcher who visits one in particular because they have been isolated for centuries (or longer), and I believe they are now protected by the national government so no one can go try to "squeeze them out". The researcher is one of the few outsiders the villagers have ever seen. South America, I think. Or maybe New Guinea.

There was one in the Philippines, but in recent years there has been enough contamination that they wear logo t-shirts and such now.
