Im sure they have had to fight off invaders for thousands of years. Parhaps this is why they are so ruthless.

MOTF!

The article says that there may be 4 or 5 hundred of them. I dont not believe that they would be cannibals though. As you said, food supply would run out rather fast.

MOTF!

You can assume and talk about them whatever you want but the fact remains - You know only as much info there was in the thread. That's almost nothing.

LOL obviously we're talking about a tribe that hasnt been influenced by outsiders. I dont believe that there are very many facts to be known about this tribe.

MOTF!

Well, after what Captain Cook did to Hawaii, probably it is best to leave these inhabitants of this tiny island alone. That is too bad about the fisherman who were foolish to go near their private island.

I doubt that anyone will try to subdue them yet, but the time will come when someone may find a way to reach them..makes me think of James Rollin's book Altar of Eden.

Whee! Wonder when they will finally be penetrated and subdued successfully? Stories like these make even Mt. Everest look mild...arrows as protection is pretty funny to me. All anyone has to do is wear the right armor and get in there, so it will happen sometime or other...protective body suits and all.

I got a question. I remember reading somewhere (I know it was some history/archaeology book, but I can't recall the name) that there's an indigenous South American Indian tribe of people living deep in the jungle somewhere in Brazil (or somewhere else, can't recall precisely). And when they were first discovered, the tribe spoke Irish Gaelic. Has anybody heard of this? Is this true?

I was thinking we should send an aid convoy to go save them. You know they've go to be living rough.


These people have been living their way of life for thousands of years. And if they are still there they must be doing something right. It would be aweful for these people to be touched by the outside world IMHO.


MOTF!

Awesome info. I got lost in the wiki reading up on the topic, also perused the external links and read a really interesting article about the tribe. Seems like India's official policy is to leave them alone.

To think that earth could still host a tribe virtually untouched since the "out-of-Africa" period is astounding. It's really too bad that we don't know anything about their language. It could be one of the very first languages ever spoken by man. Their culture, as well.

I woke up today thinking how much I love this planet (cheeseball, I know, but it really was my first thought for the day) and this just makes me feel it all the more.

Just a thought, but maybe, they know what the rest of civilization is like, and want to rid themselfs of the doom we are surely to bring to ourselfs. But it realy would be intresting to know about ther culture.

On a differnt note i would love to live secluded like that, i wouldnt have the stresses of normal life.


We don't know what their stresses are. Perhaps they go to bed every night worrying that someone witll kill them, or rape their wife, or that a animal will kill them, or worry that the "Devil" will come.

I'll take the stress and interesting life we have.

[edit on 28-8-2010 by MessOnTheFED!]


I must agree, leaving this debt and unnecessary stress of western lifestyle would be a total dream come true. I'd give anything to live by the ocean, on a beach. I'd fish, gather fruit, nuts, dig up tubers, make arrows and spears, find medicinal plants, carve a boat...

hell, I'd do it all while I work on my super-tan

studying these savages is like trying to figure out what made the first modelT cars run.
they are practicly cavemen, i doubt they have anything even clsoe to relevant or important to offer to modern civilization.
how quiant, island people living like animals.

Well you can play god with these People (Sentinelese ) bring a Computer or a Flashlight! and they would probably considered You as a god!! from heaven

I was going to get work on the south islands of the Andamans but the Indian government dragged their heels and the chance fell through.
A nice place to see and visit if you get the chance.

Apparently, when the Indian navy first visited the navy in the past few decades the local inhabitants attacked them with bows and arrows. Forcing the navy to get out of there and not want to start a fight

Cannibals...possibly.

But as the OP said, these people buried the two fisherman they killed. That shows some form of decency for the dead.

It's probably best if we just leave these people be. If you see them shooting arrows at your helicopter it's definetly a good sign that they don't want you around. It's their island, let them live their way of life in peace.



The first thing that came to my mind upon reading this was (paying homage to Army of Darkness):

"THIS right here s my....BOOMSTICK now back off!!
