Outrage over the a video that shows Jarawa tribe members being forced to dance for tourists in the Andaman Islands has brought attention to an indigenous people close to extinction.
This story reeks of colonialism and the disgusting and degrading 'human zoos' of the past, writes Stephen Corry, director of the British-based Survival International. Quite clearly, some people's attitudes towards tribal people haven't move on a jot. The Jarawa are not curcus ponies bound to dance at anyone's bidding.
The Jarawa population has dwindled to about 400 since a road was built through their land in the 1970s. India's Supreme Court ordered the Andaman Trunk Road closed in 2002, according to Survival, but tours continue to take place - putting the hunters and gatherers at risk for car accidents and diseases and to be gawked at as if in a safari.
But the Jarawas are not the only tribe that has been threatened by modern civilization. Click through the gallery to see five other groups of indigenous people who struggle to hold on to their land and lifestyle.
