John Allen Chau Wiki

John Allen Chau was an American Christian evangelist who was killed by members of the isolationist Sentinelese tribe on India’s Andaman and Nicobar islands.

The tribe and their home are protected by Indian law to maintain their way of life and protect them from modern illnesses because they lack immunity.

Officials say the islanders have lived in isolation for nearly 60,000 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 150 people.

According to his LinkedIn, he earned a degree in health and physical education from Oral Roberts University and worked in South Africa, at a refugee camp in Northern Iraq (Kurdistan), and in Tulsa with Burmese refugees and at-risk youth.

He was the outreach coordinator for ‘More than a Game’ and helped to run a Burmese refugee soccer outreach in Tulsa. Chau traveled to Kurdistan in Northern Iraq in June 2014 to run soccer clinics, coaching seminars, and a tournament for Syrian refugee children and local Kurdish youth.
