The Stone Age Tribe on a Banned Island You Can't Visit

The fascinating story of the inhabitants of North Sentinel Island where noone is allowed to go. It's hard to believe there's any place left on Earth with people who are untouched by modernity. But there is one tribe that still lives without agriculture, fire, or any real knowledge of the outside world. The Sentinelese, as they're known, live on one of the Andaman Islands, an archipelago off the coast of Myanmar (Burma). Their home, North Sentinel Island, is governed by India, but almost no one from outside the tribe has ever set foot there.

Somehow I fail to believe they were left alone. Someone must me going there, doing some weird sciency shit to them. I wouldn't be surprised if they're injecting them with superhuman serum.

That's a good question.  I'd assume it would be how most of our ancestors explained lightning up until just 200 years ago...it's something that sometimes happens and we don't know why or what it is.

Freaking Prime Directive. Also, arrows vs helis are more efective than previously anticipated. Don't let ISIS in on this.
