In the days of tribal combat, nations met on the field facing one another exchanging many taunts and challenges. The warriors carried their battle trophies to show the enemy. These men would carry the scalps, shields, war bonnets and other items taken from their adversary. The eight warriors you see here have come forward first and have hoisted up their trophies to show they are great warriors. The rest of the warriors have yet to join the assembly as they are behind them making up dust and noise to frighten or intimidate their foes.
