This Last 'Untouched' Tribe Is Extremely Violent - North Sentinel Island

Who lives on North Sentinel Island and what makes this tribe so violent. Is this tribe truly the last untouched tribe? North Sentinel Island lies to the west of the other Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. It is a small island with an area of only about 23 square miles (59.7 sq. km.). It is mostly covered by a forest that gives way to a narrow beach that encircles the island. The island is also surrounded by coral reefs and dark blue water rich with fish and other sea life. What makes North Sentinel Island different from other tropical islands is its unusual inhabitants, who we will discuss in this episode of The Infographics Show, “The Untouched Tribe – North Sentinel Island.” Walking around except for some leaves, string fibers, and other decorations, the indigenous people of North Sentinel Island, the Sentinelese, have lived in almost complete isolation from the rest of the world for nearly 60,000 years. According to a documentary about North Sentinel Island, they are “thought to be direct descendants of the first humans who emerged from Africa.” They have been isolated for so long that the language they speak has been forgotten by the rest of the world. Another concern is that their extreme isolation has made them vulnerable to modern-day diseases. They do not have immunity to them and could become seriously ill or even die as a result of being exposed to them.

The First Thanksgiving: What Really Happened

An educational animation that tells the in-depth story surrounding the first "thanksgiving". Hope you enjoy! Bibliography at bottom of description AUTHOR'S NOTE: This video is meant to give a non-bias account of the events which unfolded in the years leading up to the First Thanksgiving, and the several years following the feast (roughly 1614-1622). I apologize for any pronunciation errors with Native American names; I have a deep respect for the native peoples of America, but I am ignorant on speaking their languages. I hope I have not offended anyone! To keep the video below 7 minutes, many details were negated, so everything inside my video is what I consider essential to receiving a well-rounded view and understanding of this very interesting event. For instance, we still don't know what the epidemic of the Great Dying of 1616-1619 was, despite numerous theories. Squanto died in 1622, never admitting any involvement in a plot to overthrow Massasoit. The events that happened after 1622 could fill several more videos! There is no political agenda behind this video. I am a student of history with and I have tried to give an account of the first Thanksgiving that is as close as we can possibly get to the truth.

Columbus, de Gama, and Zheng He! 15th Century Mariners. Crash Course: World History #21

In which John Green teaches you about the beginning of the so-called Age of Discovery. You've probably heard of Christopher Columbus, who "discovered" America in 1492, but what about Vasco da Gama? How about Zheng He? Columbus gets a bad rap from many modern historians, but it turns out he was pretty important as far as the history of the world goes. That said, he wasn't the only pioneer plying the seas in the 1400s. In Portugal, Vasco da Gama was busy integrating Europe into the Indian Ocean Trade by sailing around Africa. Chinese admiral Zheng He was also traveling far and wide in the largest wooden ships ever built. Columbus, whether portrayed as hero or villain, is usually credited as the great sailor of the 15th century, but he definitely wasn't the only contender. What better way to settle this question than with a knock-down, drag-out, no holds barred, old-fashioned battle royal? We were going to make it a cage match, but welding is EXPENSIVE. Resources: The Age of Reconnaissance by JH Parry - An explanation of the technologies that made these voyages possible, and a nice detailed record of many of the important voyages. When China Ruled the Sea by Louise Levathes: A history of the Ming dynasty's ventures into maritime exploration. Unknown Seas by Ronald Watkins: A highly readable account of Vasco da Gama's introduction of europe into the Indian Ocean trade. Crash Course World History is now available on DVD!

Bibliography at bottom of description

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This video is meant to give a non-bias account of the events which unfolded when Columbus and his crew made contact with the people of the Caribbean. Of course, I was not able to fit everything into the video; I had to omit details, such as the fact that the Taino were not the only people that Columbus encountered (there were also the Ciguayo tribe and Carib cannibals). A second particular is that not all fault should lie directly on Columbus' shoulders. His crew of 1,200 for the second journey consisted partly of convicts and landless nobles, the worst type of people with which to build a settlement. Another fact is that Columbus grew up in societies (Genoa, then Portugal) that kept domestic slaves.

I have no political agenda for making this video. I am a student of history and I have tried to give an account of Columbus' journeys that is as close as we can possibly get to the truth.

I will I admit that I am not a fan of Columbus. I think he was cruel, even for his time. We cannot judge a 15th-century human from a 21st-century perspective; but even for the 15th century, he was an awful arbiter.
