They were members of an uncontacted tribe gathering eggs along the river in a remote part of the Amazon. Then, it appears, they had the bad luck of running into gold miners.

"‘Uncontacted’ Amazon Tribe Members Are Reported Killed in Brazil" is from the September 10, 2017 World section of The New York Times. It was written by Shasta Darlington and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
