Default Sentinelese islanders

I have been trying to find a discussion thread on the Sentinelese people. Can anyone point me in the right direction? This is really fascinating and there is not much on the interwebz regarding this community.

Its pretty amazing they live like the Stone Age, I think I would prefer being like that to be honest.

You can probably find YouTube comment discussions.

Interesting as they seem, I think I'd just leave them be, undiscussed. As "Their hostility to outsiders, though, is easily understandable, for the outside world has brought them little but violence and contempt." That's the way I'd want it if I were a Sentinelese Islander.

"India tried for many years to contact the Sentinelese for various reasons—science, paternalistic-style development, or even the idea that mediated contact was safer than random sailors haphazardly confronting the tribe with violence and disease. But the locals successfully hid from the first major anthropological mission in 1967, and fired arrows at the returnees in 1970 and 1973. In 1974, a National Geographic director took an arrow to the leg; in 1981, a stranded freighter had to fight off the Sentinelese for days before help arrived. Throughout the ‘70s several more individuals were wounded or killed while trying to make contact. Eventually, almost 20 years later, anthropologist Trilokinath Pandit did make tenuous contact several times, having spent years fleeing arrows and leaving gifts of metal and coconuts—he allowed the Sentinelese to undress him and gleaned some basic information about their culture. But recognizing the losses suffered up to that point, the Indian government eventually gave up, ceding to the clear Sentinelese will towards isolation and declaring an official exclusion zone, protecting the tribe’s space."
