Life went by for thousands of years and the first contact with the tribe was made by Chinese and Arabian explorers around 1,000 years ago but the visitors, who described the natives as being just three feet tall and having bird beaks, were driven back under fire from arrows.

"I think I could be more useful alive", John Allen Chau had reportedly written.
Dependera Pathak, director-general of police on India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands, said Chau organised his visit to the island through a friend who hired seven fishermen to take him there on a boat, which also towed his kayak there.
Pathak said officials are consulting anthropologists, tribal experts and scholars to figure out a way to recover the body. As the Washington Post reported, Chau had decided to make a trip to North Sentinel Island with the hope of converting the roughly 50 to 150 people living there to Christianity.
Following the killing of Chau, the police have nabbed seven fishermen for ferrying him close to the North Sentinel Island.
"Since the Sentinelesetribespeople are protected by law to preserve their way of life, due precautions were taken by the team to ensure that these particularly vulnerable tribal groups are not disturbed and distressed during this exercise", the statement said.
The sole inhabitants of North SentinelIsland, around the size of Manhattan, Sentinelese guard their territory fiercely. According to its director Stephen Corry, "the Indian authorities should have been enforcing the protection of the Sentinelese and their islandfor the safety of both the tribe and outsiders".
Outsiders are banned from even approaching the island to protect the people who live there, and their way of life.
Numerous island chain's other tribes have been decimated over the past century, lost to disease, intermarriage and migration.
Chau spent at least part of the year living in a remote cabin in Whiskeytown National Recreational Area in California, according to his posts.
"The tribe's language has a lot of high pitched sounds like ba, pa la and as", he wrote.
Yet, doubt lingered for Chau as he wondered towards the end of the journal whether he should abandon his quest or return to the island and risk the consequences. The fisherman later saw members of the tribe dragging his body around, authorities said. "We wanted the fisherman to show us the exact spot where Chau was taken and buried", Pathak said.
A statement attributed to his family posted on his purported Instagram account said that Chau "had nothing but love for the Sentinelese people". Chau's family have forgiven those who killed their son.
Authorities say Chau arrived in the area on October 16 and stayed on another island while he prepared to travel to North Sentinel.
In the wake of Chau's death, police arrested a friend believed to have helped him in his journey along with several fishermen suspected of bringing him near the island.
The report noted that Chau had been writing about the trip, showing that he was well aware of the dangers of contacting them.
