American Tourist Killed – level 2

28-11-2018 07:00

An American tourist died on an island between India and Myanmar. The Sentinelese tribes people who live there are known to be hostile to outsiders.

India controls the territory of the island. An Indian anthropology professor talked about the tribe: they shoot arrows, and they throw spears if somebody gets too close. Common sicknesses can make them sick or kill them, so people cannot visit this island easily.

Difficult words: tribes people (people who belong to a tribe – a smaller traditional society), hostile (aggressive), anthropology (the study of human societies and cultures).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
