North Sentinel Island. The legendary "forbidden island." It is illegal to come within 5 nautical miles of the island. Though if you do, its unlikely any charges will be pressed, because you'll likely be dead. The Sentinalese violently attack any foreigners on sight.
@RichardTheLionheart , this gives me a great idea for a game story line
@RichardTheLionheart , ...even shooting bows at helicopters.
@RichardTheLionheart , I bet they're real tough till I return fire with an actual gun
Part of the reason the island is so protected is precisely because of infectious diseases. If non-island natives interacted with the tribe (let's say, hypothetically they don't get killed on site), anyone from the modern world could unknowingly bring outside illness the natives would have no immunity for, and it could wipe out their entire existence.
@VinoVeritas, they did let people deliver food abd supplies tk them st one point. Then there was the other times a christian kid tried going there to convert them and they killed him before he made it to the island
Incidentally, the reason the sentinelese are so xenophobic is because when they were first contacted in the 1830ish(?) A British explorer took one back to Britain to display like a zoo exhibit, and the rest of the population got smallpox. So essentially, they learned outsiders bring disease and suffering, and passed that down through generations.
@MediocreDuck, What if I bring tacos?
@A Deformed Penis, you might be the diplomat who brings world peace.
How do I get a ticket to this island?
@twopotatoes, by claiming to be a missionary, breaking the law and chartering a boat, then getting shot and killed the second you get close
@twopotatoes, you cant. Its under military protection. No one can go to the island. And the last people who did, did on accident when their fishing boat sank. Im pretty sure they were killed by the locals.
@DrWhich, sounds like a win-win to me
@DrWhich, worst part is that wasn't the dude's first try. I think it was his third?
@DrWhich, bruh that dude got no sympathy from me
@Einhardt, 3rd times a cha....maybe not in this situation
@MrWonka, its still murder
@phalcon , not to them. Its them protecting there people. We have no business going there. People know the risks of going there, excluding the people who were shipped wrecked
@jerriest jerry , morality is not subjective. Murder is murder. Even if a, group doesn't recognize it as murder it still is.
@phalcon , so they should have just let him spread illnesses to their civilization that they have no immunity to?
For context: this is an island in the Indian Ocean that is inhabited by people who are basically stuck in the Bronze Age and are cut off from the rest of the world. Anthropologist really like the island because it allows us to see what humans were like thousands of years ago and they get mad at people who try to expose them to new things
@TriangleTesticles, Not really accurate. They really weren't treated nice by outsiders so they want to keep outsiders out. Researchers have no control over them and very little is known.
How dare they!?!!! They're clearly racist!!!! We need to start riots over there!!!
And you know what else they don’t have: the internet
