People are still in shock after the uncontacted Sentinelese tribe ended the life of a Christian missionary who attempted to convert them into Christianity. There is much debate about the tribe’s ruthless ways, but there is one thing that may have been misunderstood about these people. The truth is, the natives have actually made contact with the outside world. Unfortunately, their experience has made them wary of outsiders.
Twitter use Respectable Lawyer posted a lengthy thread sharing the truth about the Sentinelese. In the post, it is revealed that the tribe’s first contact with an outsider was through Maurice Vidal Portman. Unfortunately, the encounter with the British naval officer during the 1880s had a devastating effect on the natives.
The natives (not pictured) had a terrifying encounter with Portman in the 1880s.
According to the thread, “Portman was erotically obsessed with the Andamanese, and he indulged his passion for photography by kidnapping members of various tribes and posing them in mock-Greek homoerotic compositions.” By the time he reached the North Sentinel Island, the natives abandoned their homes to escape him. Unfortunately, he “located an elderly couple and a few children they were able to abduct.”
The elderly couple passed away after being captured by Portman. It is believed that they died because of diseases that they had no immunity to. This meant that Portman focused his attention on the captive children.
The children were later released back to the tribe. Although they survived, their tales of horror undoubtedly made the Sentinelese wary of outsiders, hence leading to violence towards visitors.

Although they are believed to be uncontacted, their only direct contact with the outside world had made them extremely aggressive. The truth is, the natives may have welcomed visitors if they had only been treated well by Portman.
Despite all efforts to reach the Sentinelese, it has become obvious that these people are better left alone for their own survival. The tweet concludes with the sad truth about their views of the outside world.
“Their aggressiveness is not the mark of savagery. It just that their conception of outsiders is mostly framed by some foot-faced English pervert who murdered some old people and did weird things to their kids. So let’s do them a favor and leave them alone.”

Vegan Activists Play Audio From Slaughterhouses To Prove A Point To Steakhouse Diners
Reaching people is never possible when they are disrespected like this.
An unnecessary event happened in a Brazilian steakhouse when a vegan activist group randomly stormed the establishment and turned it into the site of a protest. The group forced people to listen to the sounds of animals being slaughtered and urged diners to put down their forks.
The protest group is called Direct Action Everywhere that was founded in the US in 2013. Their plan was to go to meat restaurants and supermarkets in the U.K. to make people feel bad about eating meat.
