A NEARER VIEW OF THE CAMP ON THE UPPER PARIMA (SEE, ALSO, PRECEDING PAGE) The hydroplane alighted in the river after circling several times over the camp. The Indians, realizing that their home had been discovered, shortly came out of the inlet in a canoe. Their faces were painted with red ocher and long sticks were thrust through their ears. Inthe canoe were spears and bows and arrows, but they made no hostile gestures. With a sack of old clothes and other articles oftrade, the pilot and the author climbed from the plane into the canoe and were paddled into the inlet (see, also, next page).
