Description: 
A snap of the Watudsi chief Nisambo - a fine looking young man.... This tribe with leopard cat robes - and a spear bow - decorated with long grass fiber - two arrows with each bow, a large block on left wrist to stop bow string, a bark cloth dress. Everything fine and elegant about them all. [Shantz travel journal, Mar. 2, 1920]
