Notes and references

  1. von Langsdorff, p. 5: "The hair of these people is very coarse, thick, and stands erect; in some it is powdered with down feathers." Langsdorff noted, "Their bodies are fantastically painted with charcoal dust, red clay, and chalk. The foremost dancer is ornamented all over with down feathers, which gives him a monkey-like appearance; the hindermost has had the whimsical idea of painting his body to imitate the uniform of a Spanish soldier, with his boots, stockings, breeches, and upper garments."
  2. Paddison, p. 130
