There is no doubt that the most remarkable discoveries can be very unexpected, and even more so by searching the Internet because, despite everything, this incredible invention continues to be an inexhaustible source of wonders. A man displayed his instinct as a researcher and explorer and, browsing Google Maps, discovered a tribe isolated from the modern world.
Today, there are still many tribes or communities in geographical locations different from modern society. In the middle of islands, jungles, forests or deserts, it is possible to live and survive despite the climatic conditions that people may face and other factors.
With so many technological advances in full swing, the social network Twitter shared the finding. Almost like a coincidence, it was revealed that this tribe lives by choice, completely isolated from civilization.
Google Maps is an excellent tool for locating since by simply entering an address, a latitude or some reference to a place, it can find and locate you on the map, which it does so quickly and effectively.
It all happened in the Bay of Bengal, where a group of people lived on a small island about 69 kilometres in area and about five in width. North Sentinel is part of the Andaman Islands archipelago of the said bay.
Don Wonka, the user who shared the information, said that in his search, he found a small abandoned ship, believed to be the MV Primrose, which disappeared in 1981 with several passengers on board. So far, it is already surprising, but the most exciting thing is that an indigenous tribe inhabited it voluntarily, and they are against contacting strangers.
Some international media consulted with specialists to explain they are unusual situations. They argued that the Sentinelese “could have been on the island for several thousand years” and live thanks to hunting and fishing.
The anthropologist Trilokinath Pandit was the only person who reached the island in the early 1970s and had minimal contact with them.
For obvious reasons and due to the nature of what was shared, the news went viral, and many curious people began to comment on it. They are considering the possibility of flying over the area with drones. But they can only cause them to be scared away and hostile when they see strangers.
