Description: 
These natives the finest you will see - tall slender men of exceptional features. The song is a hough-zah' hough-zah', a sort of battle cry. The dancing is a rather complicat[ed] ballet, with 1 to 6 solo dancers, and all keeping time without music. [Shantz travel journal, Mar. 2, 1920]
