  • Description

    Africa.

    Full titles read: "LET'S GROW NATIVE ! (Real !) - A philosopher once said that almost everything originated in Africa - certainly a lot of dark things occurred there, especially in weird dance movements (and melody) like these -"

    L/S's and M/S's of several different African tribes in traditional native dress dancing and chanting in procession it appears to be some kind of festival. L/S's of tribesmen dancing.

    Intertitle reads: "These are French Colonials, and when the dance begins to slow - they try this cheerful little handful."

    L/S's of two tribesmen throwing large sticks or spears at each other in small arena. M/S of the the victor standing holding his stick, the loser (quite disturbingly) lies motionless on the floor. Group shot of tribesmen wearing grass skirts sitting down.
