Top Most Dangerous Tribes in History



Some of the most dangerous tribes in the world still exist, yet they are very remote from any contemporary advancements. While some of these uncontacted beings are said to be benevolent, others are considered cannibals. 

However, travelling with these remote tribes can result in your death.

Below is a list of the most dangerous tribes in history

1. Yaifo Tribe

In Papua New Guinea, the Yaifo tribe first encountered the modern era in 1988. The British author Benedict Allen, who made contact with the tribe, narrates the amazing tales of the horrific dance that served as his welcome. Yaifos are typically cut off from the outside world, and if you happen to run across them, you can be met with arrows and bows.

2. Caribs

In the Caribbean islands, there are cannibals called the Caribs. These are referred to as Caribs since this group has a cannibalism tendency. Cannibalism is being practised for the first time in history by this group of people.

Later, it spread to various parts of the planet and is regarded as one of the most dangerous tribes in the entire world. Columbus first referred to them as “Caribs.” The term “who eat people” (caniba) is an alternative to the word “Kariba.”

3. Aztec

The Aztecs are the historically known tribe with the highest level of violence. Before Columbus discovered them, these tribes were already present on the American continent. These cultures practise human sacrifice. The victim’s heart is cut out while still alive, and the body is subsequently cooked for meat. 

They believe that doing this will delight the sun and moon, whom they recognize as gods, and they do it every full moon and on days when there is no moon.

4. Korubo/ Dslala Tribe

The Koruba tribe of Brazil, also known as the Dslala, is ferocious. The Brazilian government made touch with them, but the outcomes were far from what was anticipated. The Dslalas massacred numerous government employees who ventured to cross the Amazon basin.
