The men of Rotuma, says the same writer, are very clean, the 

women also, bathing twice a day in the sea; but "bathing in 

public without the _kukuluga_, or _sulu_ [loin-cloth, which is 

the ordinary dress], around the waist is absolutely unheard of, 

and would be much looked down upon." (_Journal of the 

Anthropological Institute_, 1898, p. 410.) 

 

In ancient Samoa the only necessary garment for either man or 

woman was an apron of leaves, but they possessed so "delicate a 

sense of propriety" that even "while bathing they have a girdle 

of leaves or some other covering around the waist." (Turner, 

_Samoa a Hundred Years Ago_, p. 121.) 

 

After babyhood the Indians of Guiana are never seen naked. When 

they change their single garment they retire. The women wear a 

little apron, now generally made of European beads, but the 

Warraus still make it of the inner bark of a tree, and some of 

seeds. (Everard im Thurn, _Among the Indians of Guiana_, 1883.) 

 

The Mandurucu women of Brazil, according to Tocantins (quoted by 

Mantegazza), are completely naked, but they are careful to avoid 

any postures which might be considered indecorous, and they do 

this so skilfully that it is impossible to tell when they have 

their menstrual periods. (Mantegazza, _Fisiologia della Donna_, 

cap 9.) 

 

The Indians of Central Brazil have no "private parts." In men the 

little girdle, or string, surrounding the lower part of the 

abdomen, hides nothing; it is worn after puberty, the penis being 

often raised and placed beneath it to lengthen the prepuce. The 

women also use a little strip of bast that goes down the groin 

and passes between the thighs. Among some tribes (Karibs, Tupis, 

Nu-Arwaks) a little, triangular, coquettishly-made piece of 

bark-bast comes just below the mons veneris; it is only a few 

centimetres in width, and is called the _uluri. In both sexes 

concealment of the sexual mucous membrane is attained_. These 

articles cannot be called clothing. "The red thread of the 

Trumai, the elegant _uluri_, and the variegated flag of the 

Bororo attract attention, like ornaments, instead of drawing 

attention away." Von den Steinen thinks this proceeding a 

necessary protection against the attacks of insects, which are 

often serious in Brazil. He does think, however, that there is 

more than this, and that the people are ashamed to show the 

glans penis. (Karl von den Steinen, _Unter den Naturvoelkern 

Zentral-Brasiliens_, 1894, pp. 190 et seq.) 

 

Other travelers mention that on the Amazon among some tribes the 

women are clothed and the men naked; among others the women 

naked, and the men clothed. Thus, among the Guaycurus the men are 

quite naked, while the women wear a short petticoat; among the 

Uaupas the men always wear a loin-cloth, while the women are 

quite naked. 

 

"The feeling of modesty is very developed among the Fuegians, who 

are accustomed to live naked. They manifest it in their bearing 

and in the ease with which they show themselves in a state of 

nudity, compared with the awkwardness, blushing, and shame which 

both men and women exhibit if one gazes at certain parts of their 

bodies. Among themselves this is never done even between husband 

and wife. There is no Fuegian word for modesty, perhaps because
