The last remaining member of an uncontacted Brazilian indigenous tribe has died.

He was known as the "Man of the Hole".

He had lived in complete isolation for the past 26 years on the Tanaru indigenous land.

He was given his nickname for his habit of constructing deep holes to trap animals and to hide in, the group said.

The man had resisted all attempts to be contacted, though authorities continued to monitor him.

The man's body was found lying in a hammock in a hut by Funai officials on August 23.

He died of natural causes, and his body will undergo a forensic examination by the Federal Police, according to Funai.

The last known video of the "Man of the Hole" was released by Funai in 2018.
