These Indians live near the Rio Doce, about three hundred miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro. They wear but little clothing; their hair is very black and coarse, and their color a light mulatto. The women do not allow their hair to grow upon any part of the body except the head, and in the illustrations it may be noticed that they have no eyebrows, the hairs all having been pulled out. One of the most striking habits of these people is shown in the pictures--the wearing in the lips and ears as ornaments of great plugs resembling big, broad bottle-stoppers.
