I found this story today....thought it was kind of neat..
but well, unsure if it was worthy of it's own thread.
It seems that all the members of one tribe survived the tsunami because they knew that the "evil spirits" we about to come after them.
"HUT BAY, India - When the water in the creek suddenly ran out to sea on the morning of Dec. 26, the aboriginal Onge tribe knew the evil spirits were
up to no good.
They scattered pig and turtle skulls around their settlement and hurled stones toward the ocean. Hurriedly gathering their baskets, bows and arrows,
they then fled into the jungle, bearing amulets of ancestral bones for protection.
Minutes later, the tsunami that left nearly 300,000 people dead or missing in the Indian Ocean region slammed into their tribal reserve in India's
remote Andaman islands. All 96 Onge survived, even as residents of the nearby town of Hut Bay perished. "
hmmmm. seems like maybe these primitive tribes could teach us a few things, doesn't it?
