Extinct Peoples

Groups of peoples have gone extinct for years around the world here in Australia the Tasmanian Aboriginals have been wiped out. In New Zealand the Chatham Islanders have also been wiped out (by the Maoris, not the English)

In the America's the Eire people and the lost colony of Roanoak spring to mind.

Even in the UK the entire population of [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Rona]North Rona - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame] was killed when the rats swam ashore from a shipwreck and ate all there winter food. (1685)

Any other examples??/

What was the last group of humans to go extinct????

Group of humans as in a village that was wiped out somewhere (like Roanoke) or an entire historical nation or human race?

I'd say neanderthals.

History is full of obscure names of peoples, once carried with pride or even whispered in fear by their neighbours, that are today largely forgotten. Where are the Medes? The Scythians? The Thracians? Minoans? The Hun?

Autariates, the largest Illyrian tribe were extincted in 50 years period after Roman conquest. they used to live by sea, but after Romans defeated them, as a punishment, they moved all their members into the mountains where they died slowly and in great torments.

Also, tribe of Avars comes to my mind.

Let not forget the Vikings in Greenland.

They were on the path of developing a distinctive ethnic nature, as Icelanders did after the while. Unfortunatelly for them, the Little Ice Age came to finish such ethnic experiment.

Dozens and dozens of indigenous South American and Russian/Siberian people.

In many cases the genes still linger.Very few distinctive ethnic groups were completely eliminated although their culture, language and identity has been.
The Khoi-Khoi people, traditionally called Hottentots, no longer exist, most being killed off in various epidemics, but their genes continue within the general Cape Coloured population and some Coloured folk famously still retain their famous and unique sexual peculiarities. Although they have substantially interbred with other groups the Grigua, Basters and Damara have a strong Khoi heritage. The Hottentot language(s) has long gone, although there have been academic attempts to reconstruct it and a substrate exists in the Damara language in Namibia.
