Andaman and Nicobar Archipelago

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands is consist of natural wealthy archipelago located between the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea, that is incorporated with several tropical islands of natural beauty and bio diversity. Most of the area of the islands is lush evergreen and covered with forests and Sea water.

The cross-cultural interactions can be visible there as the people residing there can be identified as traditional tribal communities and the migrant people who have settled there. The traditional tribal communities of the Andaman including Jarawa in South and Middle Andaman, the Shompen on Nicobar and indigenous Onge of Andaman are segregated and living their secluded lifestyles as per the available resources.


The native tribal community is the North Sentinel island is remaining as the only indigenous group that resides without formal contact with the outside world. Their seclusion (the state of being private and away from other people) and perceived isolation hostility is a matter of curiosity and concern for rest of the world. The Sentinel Island and the indigenous Tribal native are currently facilitated by the strict no-contact policy of Government of India. The islanders are clearly extremely healthy but they are living with peacefulness, quietness, lack of disturbance, lack of interruption, freedom from interference of outsiders just due to their immunity and separate existance issue.
