Jarawa

  • The Jarawas are one of the four tribes in the Andamans which is a group of islands in the Indian Ocean. They live in the South Andaman islands. They are regarded as descendants of the Jangil tribe, which is now extinct. 
  • Anthropologists believe that Jarawa are descendants of first humans that move out from Africa to Asia.
