Abstract Es werden Kriegstänze mit gemimten Kampfhandlungen unter Voranschreiten des Kriegsführers und ein Scheinkampf zwischen zwei Kriegerscharen mit je einem Vorkämpfer vorgeführt. Zum Schluß führen zwei mit Bogen, Beil, Schild und Helm bewaffnete Krieger die Kampfesweise beim Einzelkampf vor.
Presents three forms of war dances. The first is performed with invisible weapons and drum accompaniment and is the same dance used before the departure to actual battle and after the victorious return of the soldiers. The second scene is a mock combat between two troops of warriors. At the end of that performance two warriors equipped with bow, hatchet, shield and helmet demonstrate the procedures used in hand-to-hand combat.
