There are so many scariest Tribes in the world and here are the few you wouldn’t want to meet.
The world is still scattered with some of the most dangerous tribes far from all modern development. One of them is a scary person running towards you with a spear, poison dart or a scary mask.
From rival groups on isolated Indian islands to a small community in the Philippines, here are 15 of the world’s most feared tribes.
Located deep in the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean, North Sentinel Island is one of the most remote places on Earth. This remote island, about the size of Manhattan, is home to the Sentinelese tribe, the most dangerous tribe in the world.
Known as the “Lords of the Plains,” the Comanche were considered the most dangerous Indian tribe of the Frontier Age. One of the Wild West’s most fascinating stories is the kidnapping of Quanah’s mother, Cynthia Ann Parker, who was kidnapped and assimilated into the tribe by the Comanches at age 9.
2. Ayoreo Tribe – Hunter-Gatherers
For centuries, the Ajoureo people who lived in the surrounding areas of Paraguay and Bolivia avoided any contact with modern civilization. They were traditional hunter-gatherers who chose to come to cities due to deforestation. The once feared tribe is on the brink of extinction from the jungle. However, those who still live in the forest can be at risk if they come into contact with outsiders.
3. Yaifo Tribe – Dangerous Tribe
The Yaifo tribe of Papua New Guinea first came into contact with the modern world in 1988. British writer Benedict Allen, who came into contact with the tribe, tells the interesting story of how they welcomed him with a terrifying dance. Yafo usually does not maintain contact with the outside world, and if he interacts with them, he is likely to be greeted by arrows and bows.
4. Awá (Brazil)
Perhaps 100 of the Awá’s roughly 600 members, dubbed “the world’s most endangered tribe,” remain nomadic in the Amazon forest on Brazil’s border with Peru, according to this year’s National Geographic in-depth report. The magazine found they were living under a “near constant” threat from illegal logging and wildfires, which inspired another tribe – the Guajajara – to stand up to protect them and become “guardians of the forest”.
5. Korowai Tribe – Cannibals of the Past
The Korowai are a tribe that used to use cannibalism as a means of justice in the jungles of southeastern West Papua. Animal sacrifices are common among the Korowai, whose lives revolve around magic and spirituality. Although they have welcomed the contact of the modern world over the past few decades, they are still one of the most ferocious tribes in the world.
6. Suri People – Warriors
Painful rituals, dangerous stick-fighting rituals, and painful lip gag define the Surui tribe. The Suri or Surama people in southwestern Ethiopia still adhere to an ancient way of life. While this tribe allows outsiders to spy on their lives, you’ll be sorry to see them.
7. Yanomami Tribes – Violence and Isolation
Nestled in the dense forests of the Amazon between Venezuela and Brazil, the Yanomami are easily one of the most violent tribes in the world. Although these people faced alcoholism, disease and violence as a result of their exposure to civilization, they remained mostly isolated.
8. Palawan (Philippines)
The southern island of Palawan in the Philippines has a total of about 40,000 people, but residents in the interior remain isolated and have little contact with the outside world, Survival said. The nonprofits point out that they practice shift farming, which regenerates forests as they move farmland from one place to another, but have found themselves threatened by surface and open-pit mining in recent years.
