As things have been so quiet recently I thought it would be a good idea to do an international roundup – belowI presume most of you have seen Avatar by know. The tale of the struggle of the Na’vi to devolve Policing and Justice from the wicked human planters (something like that anyway). Bit of strange film with so many cinematic metaphors – Thousands of jungle fighting Vietnam films, Burt Lancester swimming, countless Cowboys and Injuns from my childhood, Pullman’s daemons and even Star Trek came to mind.
Anyway, Survival International like it as I suspect would the Sentinelese of North Sentinel island, in the Andamans. The Sydney Morning Herald describes their resistance methods. India Daily describes how they survived the Tsunami – spooky last paragraph.
Friendly contact on You Tube.
