From Curious Expedition 2 Wiki
First time encountering locals on the island.
Encounter with Mole Warriors.
The green glow around the avatar indicates that the locals have spotted you and will try to meet you.

While traveling you can encounter a multitude of people and living things. On every island, you will be able to encounter locals and animals. Some animals will be friendly and others very dangerous.

The color behind their avatar indicates whether they are friendly or hostile. If the background is green you can approach them and it will trigger an encounter Event where you can learn something about the tribe or interact with them in different ways. If the background is red you can approach them as well but you can only decide to trigger a fight.
