Plate XXXIII. How the Indians Declare War.

A chief who declares war against his enemy does not send a herald to do it, but orders some arrows having locks of hair fastened at the notches to be stuck up along the public ways; as we observed when, after taking the chief Outina prisoner, we carried him around to the towns under his authority, to make them furnish us provisions.
