The tribe of Andaman Island and their life stories are thoroughly shown in the vast anthropological museum in Andaman. The museum shows the knowledge of four different and largest Andaman tribes named Jarawas, Sentinelese, Great Andamanese and Onges. This museum was created with the purpose of showing the cultural significance of the tribes and continued to live here in Andaman.
Highlights: Jarawa chest protectors with sculptural geometric figures are one of the most attractive things in the museum. It shows the simple Jarawa tribes lifestyle. The gothic lifestyle followed by the Sentenelese tribes is portrayed by keeping a skull restored from the place where they lived. Another important thing is the different types of both of different dimensions that explain the lives of coastal residents and natives.
Handicraft products made of coconut or palm leaves show the artistic culture that prevails among tribal groups in the forest. Some apparel accessories and clothes that are kept at the museum tell us that there were no gender prejudices among tribal people as members of both men and women used the same kind of dresses. The huge library in the museum sheds light on the unknown facts and knowledge about tribes, the ancient indigenous people and their lifestyle, cultural transitions and nourishment followed by almost all people on the island. A collection of weapons and armour that was used in ancient times shows how important and anxious maritime attacks and uprisings took place over time and how the tribes were ready to face them.
