The Korubo are some of the last people on Earth to live in near isolation from modern society although they have on numerous occasions had violent contacts with the surrounding communities.
An offshoot of the group is led by a woman named Maya. This splinter group has around 23 members while the larger group is estimated to have 150 members.
Their hunting and war weapon of choice is the club, and aside from poison darts they use no other ranged weapons - their workday is about 4-5 hours long, and often live inside large, communal huts called malocas.
Their diet includes fish, spider monkeys, peccary, birds, wild pig, fruit, manioc and corn. A leading cause of illness and death within the tribe is by malaria. They have some knowledge of agriculture, making clearings for harvests of crops.
