THE FLIERS DISCOVER THE CAMP OF AN UNKNOWN INDIAN TRIBE, SKILLFULLY CONCEALED FROM ALL EXCEPT THE AIRMEN This photograph is characteristic of many other hidden Indian maloccas in the warring country of theupper Parima. Note that thehut, holding probably 30 men, women, and children, is located several hundred yards from the river, and that no canoes orother evidences oflifearevisible at the bank. Close by is seen a small stream, which appears, from canoes paddled by passing Indians ofother tribes, just like any other small stream on the river. Up it, probably around the first bend, are likely to be found the dugout canoes of the tribe whose hutisseen soplainly from thehydroplane. The trail from the hut leads, therefore, not to the river directly, but to the place where canoes are tied.
