Ethnic groups living in the rainforest can be classified into four categories according to the frequency of contact with civilization:
Isolated: These are groups that live in areas untouched by civilization, with nomadic habits. They clearly retain their ethnic and cultural identity.
Sporadic contact: They belong to those groups whose territory is difficult to access. They establish sporadic contact with civilization and essentially retain their ethnic identity.
Permanent contact: In this category, we find the groups that have already lost their socio-cultural autonomy, and are clearly in a process of ethnic disintegration.
Integrated: This category includes groups that have lost their cultural and ethnic identity and co-exist together, although marginalized, within civilization.
