Dark Secrets of the World’s Most Isolated Island

I'm currently on a ship on my way to the

most

isolated

inhabited

island

in the

world

, where only 40 people somehow live, to find the story of how these people ended up on this

island

, which only got weirder and more confusing the more I tried to figure it out. for what makes this story fascinating is not the extreme remoteness of the

island

, but how the inhabitants got there and the lawlessness that ensued once they were trapped when Royal Britannic Majesty sent the Bounty near the

island

of Tahiti, their mutant crew and established the capital. Steering in an Open Boat is a tale of treachery, piracy and death that has become famous around the

world

and has been adapted again and again as a cautionary tale about leadership in trouble.

This is the story of Pitcairn

Island

. , intrigued and mesmerized all at once I really had no idea what to expect from this journey I am about to start the longest journey I have ever been on to get to the place I need to be how can you imagine a journey to such a

isolated

place takes me a long time, about four days, initially I flew from Paris to Los Angeles. I then headed to French Polynesia where I hooked up with my friend Corey and he walked me all the way where we celebrated his 30th birthday in the presence of giants, then caught a local flight to the

most

isolated

airport in Polynesia, then a ferry to the

island

main and finally another ship that would take us to our beloved ship where we spent two days in the middle of the rocky South Pacific Ocean to finally reach our destination what the hell oh 21 Jump Street look at us let's go see a movie together movie night never mind this cargo-like ship was quaint but equipped with movies a chef and a bed I couldn't have asked for much more than that, we've officially made it on the MV silver supporter.

I have been dreaming of getting on this ship that goes to the Pitcairn

Island

s for three years. Just two days to get to Pitcairn. The waves are intense, man, as we got closer. the

island

. I felt a

dark

mystery from its past ringing in my mind, so let me introduce its incredible story by turning our clocks back to 1787. To bring breadfruit to a cheap, filler plant to feed British slaves in the Caribbean , it took a long and dangerous voyage of 10 months in which they were nearly shipwrecked numerous times until the Bounty reached Tahiti. By then, the cruiser's morale had reached its lowest point. and they became dissatisfied with Captain Bligh's treatment of them after a five-month stopover on the

island

waiting for the breadfruit plants to grow.

Many of the sailors became intimate with some of the local women and while living on the beach in literal Paradise. they began to become more and more insubordinate, as it was time to go on their mission and then return to England, the tension reached a boiling point and a riot broke out again. The captain and Bly, led by their friend and second-in-command Fletcher Christian Bly and 18 of his loyalists, were handcuffed and thrown off the ship onto a small boat in the middle of the ocean with only a few days' worth of water and a compass. basically shipped. until his death, Fletcher Christian took control of the bounty, and since they were all now mutineers and traitors to the British Empire, a capital crime, they had to find a way to disappear from earth through unimaginable luck. the Polynesians they had taken with those on board had expert navigational skills and noticed that one

island

was mismapped on the British map, meaning it was mismapped on all British maps, making it the perfect hideout .
dark secrets of the world s most isolated island
Once they reached Pitcairn

Island

, they set the ship on fire to hide it. by British ships passing by looking for them Fletcher Christian along with eight other mutineers, six Tahitian men and 14 Tahitian women were now trapped on the

world

's

most

remote

island

for the rest of their lives, lawlessness erupted once they reached the

island

.

island

about 200 years ago and only one man finally survived today there are four families and around 40 inhabitants left on the

island

we will meet

most

of them direct descendants of the mutineers good morning we should have been late last night the ship is not moving currently we are going to take a look oh my god there it is p made karen

dark secrets of the world s most isolated island

most

of the

island

locals was the grocery store oh wow this is a big storm i wasn't expecting this at all oh so i guess yes you have for Freeze a lot of the stuff, yeah, and then your favorite side of the aisle, oh, that's my favorite place in the store, huh, am I naughty?
dark secrets of the world s most isolated island
Well this is where you'll get

most

of the stuff in the shop in this yeah yeah so just stuff that comes out of supply ships yeah yeah so we hadn't had one for about three months and there was an empty shop or something like that yeah there are a lot of them I mean it's like no one goes hungry yeah do you grow anything on the

island

or not yeah yeah they all cry for themselves so it's not like culture shock it's interesting , right, it seems that we knew each other all the time when we landed, yes, yes, it's okay, we have some food.
I'm lovin 'it. from the main mutineer, uh, Fletcher Christian, yeah, who led the mutiny and brought them here in the first place, so we stayed at The Descendants' house. It's amazing that they're still here. the

island

because living here is not easy, no, they are still here, wow, this is one of the cannons they took from the ship, holy, this is a living museum, we are walking towards the only known resting place. That of one of the mutineers was the last to survive John Adams buried right here and taught the whole

island

how to read how to grow the plant, for which he is highly revered and loved.
All the other mutineers were killed and simply thrown out. the

island

so this is the only known grave resting place from the vegetation to the history to the people this

island

is very special and the vegetation is absolutely mind blowing i mean the trees everywhere you look are spectacular. these trees look like they came straight out of avatar like i haven't seen such diverse wildlife in nature before going to the highest point right now wow jungle can you imagine arriving here 250 years ago and right here is your home? ok this is the highest point wow Paris 15,127 kilometers away Easter

Island

is one of the closest

island

s and it is 2,000 kilometers away Tahiti 2,325 kilometers away wow this drop is that we are seeing a whale swimming far away in the distance, he seems extremely playful, so Corey will shoot the drone and see if we can get close to it.
Several whales that we can see from a distance from the coast here abroad. We keep finding some spectacular views here at Pickard

Island

island

, even though Pattern

Island

was completely uninhabited when the bounty washed up on its shores, it turns out that it wasn't actually the first time humans set foot on this

island

, so here It is where the Polynesians and the car arrived. see on the Rock in the sand on the wall down there it's on the wall wow how the hell do we get down there that seems impossible to get down yes that doesn't seem doable so Polynesians came here potentially yes no thousands still no one knows, no one knows when, yes, the Polynesians are an ethnic group that we rarely talk about and give credit to, however they were some of the

most

skilled and courageous sailors to ever live to the point that they were basically using the vast and daunting Pacific Ocean. as a massive highway that travels between distances as vast as the eastern Hawaiian

Island

s and French Polynesia, primarily paddling at night while using the stars for direction, and more than 1,000 years ago, a small group of approximately 50 to 100 Polynesians they settled here for a period of time and disappeared under unknown circumstances leaving only a few traces, so now we would reduce this clip to discover ourselves with our lovely and excited immigration police officer and guide Brenda to all adventure pain in the ass you are a pain in the ass they were a pain in the ass for wanting to do this hike yeah are you ready yeah there's a bathroom go barefoot i won't back down i'm freaking out on hiking boots when you say don't hold on to any of the roots because they're not solid ok? in the background sit on this beach there are a lot of remnants of an ancient polynesian society that came over and they have intricate sailing carvings on the walls wow wow they are right there look at that looking at the carvings realizing the unimaginable feet it took . for them to get here at that time, I can only stop and wonder how much ancient knowledge and wisdom we have lost, what they were trying to tell us or what they were trying to remember, they have estimated around 1,200 to 1,600 years ago. does but even that's just a complete assumption they like it they actually can't tell when it was made what do you think seeing these carvings on the walls how does it feel to you you know i'm out of it cause this is my home so you know that for me it is part of our, our life and our history, yes, today, more than 200 years after the mutineers landed on Pitcairn

Island

, the remaining locals have had to find a way to survive so far from any connection to the rest of humanity, family dinner, yes, family dinner you always point to.
I have nothing to pay for this includes getting occasional shipments of food and supplies which we saw earlier at the only grocery store on the

island

but also requires the locals to get their own food which is way up high oh my gosh look at all these bananas that we are catching. our own dinner here we already have six fish wow we have chef olive here look at this master chef this is the hilton now cooking is this the fish we caught that's the fish wow i have a full meal how are we doing oh delicious i'm doing delicious crafty doing it delicious thanks from nothing was difficult to connect with such horrible things that happened in a paradise like this seems to be inhaled and somehow coexist in one place but i guess that is the story of our planet and species as a whole ok we are leaving we will miss you You're going to miss the room Are you going to miss me?
I have been blessed with the

most

abundant and beautiful planet in existence, but we can't seem to find a way to peacefully coexist together. As Pitcairn's population is rapidly dwindling with the departure of the young and the aging of The Descendants, there is real concern on the part of the British government as to whether this

island

will be able to maintain the strangeness for now.200 year history of these mutineers. this

isolated

place will remain inhabited or our grandchildren will only find out about it through their myths and stories
