    Let's hope they don't get wiped out by a virus or disease to which they have no immunity carried by that selfish deluded idiot that went to their island.

    He isn't the first attempted contact, and unlike the first (1860ish), no actual contact has been made with the people. As they tend to drive the people off with spears/arrows and then leave the bodies on the beach, hopefully nothing will be passed on to the native peoples.

    The Sentinelese have fire, we know because of the smoke and the lights at night.

    Quoting anthropologist T.N. Pandit, who explored the island in 1967:
    I noticed fire and cooked food items. We saw roasted fish, wild fruits. There were bows, arrows and spears all around. There were halfmade baskets, too.
