Yes, there are indigenous people in the Amazon. It's a BIG forest, not all of it has been destroyed yet.. there are many beautiful parts left thankfully. :)

Of course there are also many people who have had to move and people who have been badly treated by logging companies, governments, etc.. and unfortunately far too much of the forest has indeed been ruined. But the same is true for forests all over the world!

Perhaps you would be interested in reading about the Amazon Alliance, a group set up to help the indigenous people of the Amazon basin.

Only about 10 years ago some new tribes were discoverd, defending their territory during deforestation (is that word correct?). This was in 1995 in Rondonia, north of Bolivia/norteast of Peru.
It is believed there are still some undiscovered indian tribes, but their number is not so high probably, as most parts have been travelled.

By the way, there are lots of towns in the Amazone, along the river, Manaus being the biggest with over 1,5 mil people.

I have never been to the Amazon Rainforest, but I do know our planet will not survive very well without it.
