The world is a mysterious place with so many energetic and varying cultures. However, in this day and age, when everything is controlled by technology, it is easy to contact anyone from anywhere in the world. With over 7 billion people on this earth, there are still some tribes that do not support nor understand our modern living ways, and their secluded lives remain untouched. Despite all of this, one human trait remains the same, and it is the need to explore and unravel the unknown. So it only makes sense that humans sometimes do all they can to contact the most isolated tribes in the world, just to see how different they are from us.

In 1991 one woman did the impossible by contacting the most isolated tribe in the world – the Sentinelese

Madhumala Chattopadhyay led an extraordinary expedition with one goal – to contact the tribe and reveal what life is like for these most secluded people, who are known to be dangerous and aggressive. In one interview Madhumala later explained “Never ever in my six years of doing research along with the tribes of Andamans did any man ever misbehave with me. The tribes might be primitive in their technological achievements, but socially they are far ahead of us.”

The tribe is located on the Andaman Islands, in the Indian Ocean

They are a part of Andamanese people, which also includes such tribes as the Onge, Shompen, and Jarawa. Even though the people live relatively close to each other, their communication with the modern world is drastically different. The Jarawa tribe is known to be one of the most civilized of them all, yet the Sentinelese are considered to be the most dangerous and isolated.
