The US man killed by a remote tribe on India's Andaman and Nicobar islands this week reportedly wanted to be an explorer. John Allen Chau was shot with bows and arrows as he landed on North Sentinel island, which is forbidden to outsiders, say local fishermen. According to local officials, the year-old was a Christian missionary.
But on social media and in an interview attributed to him, Chau presented himself as an adventurer. According to reports, Chau was killed by Sentinelese tribal people after he bribed fishermen to take him to the island illegally. But in a strict sense, he was not a missionary.
His intention was to meet the aborigines. Officials say the islanders have lived in isolation for nearly 60, years and therefore have no immunities to common illnesses such as the flu and measles. Advocacy group Survival International said that by contacting the community, Chau may have passed along pathogens that have the "potential to wipeout the entire tribe" of about 50 to people.
Police had earlier said he had set out with hired fishermen under cover of darkness and paddled a kayak ashore before he was killed. He had reportedly brought gifts for the islanders, including a small soccer ball, fishing line and scissors.
On Instagram, a user with the name johnachau describes himself as "a snakebite survivor" and wilderness medic who is "following the way". In the interview with Outbound Collective, he said he was living in Vancouver working as a soccer coach and had been inspired to travel at an early age. He said he was inspired by the Victorian explorer and missionary David Livingston and Jesus. Chau told the publication his next goal was returning to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. On Instagram, a friend said Chau had been "martyred". Our dear friend John was martyred on the Andaman Islands, killed by bow and arrow.
In recent posts on Instagram, he mentioned travelling to Diglipur, the largest town in the Andamans. He posted a photo of a tropical waterfall, and commented that it was full of leeches. Describing the beautiful scene, he used the hashtag " solideogloria" which is Latin for "glory to God alone". American 'killed by arrow-wielding tribe'. Andaman languages get dictionary.
