Now an illegal road cuts through the Jarawa's rainforest, and poachers and tourists invade their land. Poachers steal the animals the Jarawa need to survive and, like the tourists, risk introducing diseases to which the tribe have no immunity

Bad news. The "civilised" world should reduce the pressure it is placing on nature and indigenous people.

Let those tribes live how they have lived the last thousands of years. Human greed and cruelty is wiping out another part of this planet, that used to be wonderful before we longed for it's treasures and for money!

Why do other civilizations think that any other is inferior. Just because one has far fewer numbers does not make then inferior. They are living within the means of the area where they live. They may have great knowledge about survival that the rest on humanity needs. They may have a unique perspective on God or life or cohabitation and cooperation that would lead to an AH HA moment for the rest of us. Protecting these people through out the world is important. If we go any where near them we must take every care not to cause their extinction.

Why are indigenous groups treated as inferior? Why does the government allow this continue ?
It must be because of financial gain!

History repeats itself, again, again, and again. Instead of reaching out with a helping hand, another misguided attempt to "civilize" others.
