So the Indian government claims they are protecting these people when they have done nothing but allow them to be exploited and used just like they do all black people in the country. The Island is under attack from poachers coming in and taking the wild animals the people have lived on for centuries and made it difficult to survive.
The Jarawas (Jarawa: Aong, pronounced are an indigenous people of the Andaman Islands in India. They live in parts of South Andaman and Middle Andaman Islands, and their present numbers are estimated at between 250–400 individuals. They have largely shunned interaction with outsiders, and many particulars of their society, culture and traditions are poorly understood.
Since the 1990s, contacts between Jarawa groups and outsiders grew increasingly frequent. By the 2000s, some Jarawas had become regular visitors at settlements, where they trade, interact with tourists, get medical aid, and even send their children to school.
The Jarawas are recognised as an Adivasi group in India. Along with other indigenous Andamanese peoples, they have inhabited the islands for several thousand years. The Andaman Islands have been known to outsiders since antiquity; however, until quite recent times they were infrequently visited, and such contacts were predominantly sporadic and temporary. For the greater portion of their history their only significant contact has been with other Andamanese groups. Through many decades, contact with the tribe has diminished quite significantly.
There is some indication that the Jarawa regarded the now-extinct Jangil tribe as a parent tribe from which they split centuries or millennia ago, even though the Jarawa outnumbered (and eventually out-survived) the Jangil. The Jangil (also called the Rutland Island Aka Bea) were presumed extinct by 1931.
The Jarawa are a designated Scheduled Tribe in India.
They have infected the people with Covid and they have turned the Island into a tourist destination all in the name of “protecting” the people. They have forced the people to except paper money in exchange for the wild pig they have been living on and with nothing in return it has become a very dangerous life for the people.
They have been captured like animals and raped, forced to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, they have been made to wear clothes now, they have been forced to use flash lights, cook in metal pots all in the name of protecting them. India has a history of abusing and discriminating against the darker shades of their race and africans and it goes back even to the days of Ghandi!
In Indian Ocean, Jarawa tribe risks dying out!https://youtu.be/NdvlO6bPG60
Yes he was a racist and people ignore this fact! The Island is a Human zoo just like the early colonist did to us and later around the early 1900’s.
Remember Ota Benga?https://youtu.be/klql6D3vN2c This has been going on for a very long time and in 2016 the number of inhabitants was around 400, this is 2022, i have no information on the number now but i expect it to be much less than that number.
These people are the last and oldest connection to our ancient past, they are said to have existed in on the island for at least 35 thousand years after migrating from Africa. It makes me very angry to know this is happening again at this stage in his-story but i understand WHO i’m dealing with. SG64
