Shorthand: Why North Sentinel Island is Forbidden

8/2/2022
There is an island in the Bay of Bengal populated by indigenous hunter-gatherers, who live much like our ancestors did some 60,000 years ago. They’ve made it clear they want no contact with the outside world, and in the 50s, India made it illegal for anyone to go within five miles of its shoreline. But a few years ago one man, who thought he was above that rule, snuck onto the island proclaiming to the local tribe that Jesus loved them. He has never been seen again. Hannah and Suruthi...
