The visiting party took the initiative of dropping coconuts in the water.
Suddenly, a small group of Sentinelese approached them on a canoe and took the offering. Then a young Sentinelese on the shore had his bow and arrow targeted at the visiting party.

The only time mainlanders should ever consider approaching them is during natural calamities conducting rescue operations, she says. Her remarkable research on the Jarawas, Onges and the Sentinelese have become mandated reading for any anthropologists or anyone around the world looking to study them.
