THE SHIPWRECK, JOURNEY, AND JOURNAL OF JONATHAN DICKINSON

Not long after making shelter following the shipwreck, the castaways were visited by two Native American men. In his journal, Dickinson described them as "naked, except for a small piece of plaited work of straws, which just hid their private parts, and fastened behind like a horse tail in likeness, made of a sort of silk grass. They had their hair tied in a roll behind, in which stuck two bones, one shaped like an arrow, the other a spear head."
