People in Andaman and nicobar islandsEdit This
In the 18th century, before the establishment of penal settlements in Andaman Islands, the population of the Great Andamanese tribes was largest among all the tribes. With due course of time, the population reduced by 40 percent in the 20th century. Their traditional foods include fish, dugong, turtles and their eggs, crabs, and tubers. They also go for hunting and fishing occasionally. Onges
Onges are one of the historical primitive tribes in India. They are a small part of Negrito race. The tribes are among the semi-nomadic tribes and are totally dependent on the food provided by the nature. The Onges go for hunting sometimes. The tribes are however provided with pucca houses by the administration. They are also provided with medicines, food and clothes. The issue of concern is the decline in their numbers. These tribes are decreasing and in the year 2010 you can see just 100 Onges are left.Jarawas
The Jawaras are the friendly tribes in the list of Andaman and Nicobar Islands people. They are hostile in nature. These people had a landmark time in the first quarter of the year 1974. The Administration had a friendly conversation with the Jawaras and gave to these tribes various fruits as gifts. Now, they are coming out of jungles. These tribes have a population of 280 at present.Sentinelese
