People creaming themselves over Nicki now that she’s “toned it down” and is going “back to her roots” or whatever leaves a really bad taste in mouth. Maybe all the pink drag and pop music was an aspect of herself she wanted to explore? How you even know who the “real” Nicki is? Like dressing up in “wacky” outfits doesn’t make you fake.
Here is Prof. Erika Hagelberg not gaining access to the people of the Andaman islands and more questions than answers being raised, its thought provoking and there is some incredible footage even so.
The islands are now being settled upon by newcomers working for logging companies, commercial farms and tourism and a completely different way of life is being forced on the people of the Andaman islands, their ways are almost all but gone, no more are they hunter gatherers, their food is given to them and safari groups go to see them like its a human zoo + the visitors and newcomers have diseases the islanders have never come across, so they have no immunity, its the usual story, except for one island where the Sentinelese people live, they have managed to maintain their isolation by attacking those that try to land on it, the Indian government has, since 1967 been trying to make friendly contact but to no avail, in 2006 they killed 2 fishermen that were too close to the beach and wouldn’t let the helicopter land to take their dead bodies back to the mainland, nobody has tried to enter since. It is estimated there are only 250 Sentinelese people left.
It is as Tone (http://tonyvwright.tumblr.com/) has commented, the documentary is as dull as ditchwater but the subject matter is marvellous, I put it up to accompany the Royal Society link I previously posted.
