I Met A Warrior From North Sentinel …

Posted by on 28. November 2018

This is our book …

WHAT UTTER NONSENSE IS WRITTEN NOW ABOUT THIS LAST UNKNOWN TRIBE ON EARTH! Just because this American idiot, the missionary John Allen Chau, was speared to death on North Sentinel. My sympathies are with the warrior who did this – defending his world against an unwelcome intruder. What did this Mr. Chau want of these people, living for thousands of years in peace? Bring christianity? Become famous? Well, now he is dead. – In 1977 Prof. Heinrich Harrer, ex-king Leopold of Belgium and myself made an expedition to North Sentinel, sponsored by the Indian government (the Andaman Islands belong to India). We shipped close to the shore on a gunboat of the Indian Marine but a warrior shooed us away with bow & arrow. In a rapid action we surrounded the island and put present ashore – but they didn’t take it, well guided by their instinct. Later I have ghostwritten a bestseller for Heinrich Harrer, „Die letzten Fünfhundert“ (in German), describing our adventure and telling all information about the North Sentinelese, we could find – like no fire, no wheel, no name for themselves, no counting system and so on. What I read now, is all stolen from our book, which is never mentioned. But if you are able to read German, I strongly suggest you get it. And by the way: Harrer and Leopold later signed a pact with the then prime minister Indira Gandhi, that for the next 100 years nobody is to go near North Sentinel …
