About these natives is mentioned by Marco Polo in his records. Sentinelese he described as “the Most bloodthirsty tribe that ever see.”
Hard to believe that in our century of high technologies when people almost do not part with smartphones, there are still places where people live the same way as thousands of years ago.
In the Bay of Bengal in the North Sentinelese ostrove that geographically belongs to India, lives a tribe that will not allow itself to civilization — sentinels. The island area is 72 square kilometers.
This ancient tribe is so neprijatno to strangers that approached their little settlement impossible. All attempts to arrange a census of the population ended with the death of daredevil. However, researchers believe that the number of the tribe of about 250 people.
Researchers estimate that the sentinelese live in complete isolation for about 60 thousand years. And during that time have not even learned to make fire — instead they use a sophisticated system of storage of smoldering embers in clay pots. In which language they communicate is still unknown. After all, nobody has been able to talk to them.
By the way, they shoot very accurately — can hit a man at a distance of 100 meters.
In 1974, there was a tragic accident, bad luck, the film crew Director of “National Geographic” — he was shot by an arrow, when the crew tried to land on the island. Scientists brought different gifts to the natives; coconuts, cooking utensils and even a live pig. After the attack on a group of coconuts and utensils of the natives was taken away, and the pig killed and buried.
After that, there were a few deaths of the people of India at the hands of tribal people.
So special attention sentinels attracted in 2006, after he had killed two fishermen-poachers, veering off course and decided to fish near their island. After that, the bodies of the fishermen were sent to the helicopter — its aborigines met with a hail of arrows, and to pick up the bodies and failed.
This year the tribe made themselves known again. November 21, U.S. police reported that 28-year-old American John Chow died at the hands of the sentinels. He decided to visit the island to preach Christianity to the natives.
We will remind, the Brazilian national Indian Foundation (FUNAI) found in the forests of the Amazon, a previously unknown tribe of natives.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” scientists from Gemutslage College stated that the natives of Papua New Guinea until the early twentieth century did the daggers from the femoral bones of a man for prestige, and for utilitarian purposes; they produced daggers from the bones of cassowary.
Also “Znayu” I wrote the photographer showed the tribes on the verge of extinction.
