In the Bay of Bengal there is a small island that you will not immediately notice. This place is closed from prying eyes, and civilization is a meaningless word for its inhabitants.
Let's find out what kind of mysterious island it is and who inhabits it!
Where is the unusual island
Legally, the territory belongs to India, but in fact North Sentinele Island is completely independent. The main reason for this isolation is that the very population of the island believes that there is nothing around them. And the tribe simply does not want to prove the opposite.
In these places live primitive people, whom civilization did not affect at all. By the way, no one approaches them, because savages react very aggressively to passing ships.
Expedition of the 60s
The first expedition went to Sentinel Island only in the second half of the last century. By that time, most of the wild tribes had already been studied, and life in them was gradually becoming more modern.
Scientists and journalists, encouraged by the upcoming discoveries and full of bright hopes, swam to the island by boat. However, approaching the ground at the distance of the arrow's flight, they met fierce resistance. The craving for research still overcame fear, and the expedition ventured to continue the journey.
On the shore, all sorts of gifts were left for the aborigines: coconuts, household utensils, a doll and even a pig. The guests did not dare to move deep into the territory and sailed away from the strange island.
The savages were wary of the things they had brought. The pig and the doll were immediately buried, but the kitchen utensils impressed the locals. But there was no expected hint of a possible friendship, as the next delegation from a large land was again met with hostility by the Aborigines.
After that, it was decided not to disturb the islanders, and there were no further attempts at rapprochement.
At the end of the XX century, a cult of reverent and careful attitude to primitive tribes appeared among researchers, so the savages from the North Sentinelese Island ceased to bother, and the territory itself was declared closed.
Because of the impossibility of close contact with local savages, they began to observe their lives from helicopters, but this did not help to find out how many people live on the island today, what language they speak and much more. And the Indian authorities, for their part, have increased their control over tourists who periodically try to enter this island, so the tribe living in a closed territory has become isolated and independent.
Once, about 15 years ago, poachers chose the coastline of Sentinele Island for fishing. Of course, the natives did not tolerate this and attacked the boat. As a result of the fight, two fishermen were killed by the savages, and their skeletons were laid on the shore for the edification of other unwanted guests.
Of course, the Indian islanders are not the only primitive people on the planet: there are more than a hundred such tribes, and all of them do not recognize civilization and refuse any contact with outsiders. Most of these aborigines settled in Bolivia and Brazil, as well as in New Guinea. Savages are supported and protected by the leadership of the country to whose jurisdiction they belong. In addition, communication with tourists for savages can be elementarily dangerous, because they have not developed immunity to modern viruses, and even a disease that is safe for any of us can be fatal for primitive man.
