why does the sentinelese people attack visitors and why do they stay isolated?

Some cultures are more weary of outsiders, while others are more curious and friendly to them. There are plenty of examples of both types of people, which is evidenced, for example, from the different types of experiences Europeans had encountering various tribes of Native Americans for the first time.
The Sentinelese are obviously part of the weary group. They have their way of life. They have lived for presumably thousands of years by themselves. They probably don't have any mythology concerning foreign people coming to their lands, so they don't see those newcomers as some "coming" of special people but instead as unknown and dangerous people.
I think we should let them be. Not everyone has to live a modern way of life.
