One Indian scientist in 1991 managed to get the attention of the natives. They were interested in some red plastic buckets and collected them from the shore, but didn’t want to communicate with the scientist. The scientists recorded the shouts and sounds that the natives used and compared them to the other languages spoken on the neighboring Andaman Islands. Soon agreed on that their language is unique and these people lived isolated for thousands of years.
This island is part of India; therefore the Indian government is very protective towards these people and doesn’t allow tourists to go to the island. The reasons for this are – the inhabitants are not immune to our diseases and that they are dangerous for outsiders.
These islanders hopefully will continue to live their life unharmed on their own island with no interest in the outside world, still believing in gods dwelling in stones and trees.
