The Negrito People and the Out-of-Africa Story of the human race  

Video Section by Yves Balmer  



Welcome on the Video Section of the Andaman Website! You will find here many video-clips that documents how various groups of human beings have organized their life. Many of them have not gone beyond the stone-age hunting-gathering technologically, some practice shifting cultivation, others grow standard crops, still others raise cattle while some do many or even all of these things.

What you will see in these videos is the threat that modern civilization poses to indigenous ways of life. So-called "primitive" cultures are deeply embedded in their natural habitat. If you participate in altering or destroying this delicate balance, you will eventually deprive these people of their life-supporting sustenance and contribute to their extinction.

The greatest threats for indigenous people are the transmission of diseases and the loss of their territory. The variety of modern human genome is - compared to animal species - greatly reduced. It seems that this trend is also spilling over into cultural levels, leading to ever-growing standardization of human cultures.
