The Sentinelese people live on the Andaman Islands off the coast of India. They are among a number of tribes in the world that have shunned contact with the rest of the globe. And with a culture that has survived intact and served them well for 60,000 years, you can’t really argue with the wisdom of their choice. The Indian government tried for a while to establish contact, but met with little success since the Sentinelese are quite happy not to be bothered. Here is a video of one attempt to contact them. These links come from Survival International, an organization devoted to supporting the rights of tribal peoples worldwide.
