Do Should uncontacted peoples have a right to privacy?

I've been reading some of the wikis about the uncontacted peoples of the world and the often repeated attempts to establish contact with a a number of them even after being rebuffed (sometimes violently). DoShould these peoples have a right to complete privacy and isolation? Or is it unethical to not integrate them into modern civilisation?

Edit: As a corollary question, take for example a completely isolated island in the middle of a vast ocean where an uncontacted tribe resides. Should an offer of contact even be made to them?

I've been reading some of the wikis about the uncontacted peoples of the world and the often repeated attempts to establish contact with a a number of them even after being rebuffed (sometimes violently). Do these peoples have a right to complete privacy and isolation? Or is it unethical to deprivenot integrate them of the "benefits" ofinto modern civilisation?

There's also the question of the disease and decadence that reintegrated tribes are often unable to cope with, and the inevitable erosion of their cultures. But that isn't the focus of my question.
