Crate

This crate containing one "bicho" dress, Caraja

This dress was made by a Caraja man in secret in the bicho house and has not been worn. The Indians will not sell a dress that a man has worn lest the man die soon after. This dress was never seen by a Caraja woman and was brought to me after dark and in great secrecy and I must promise never to let a Caraja woman see it for if one ever did she would bring a great calamity upon the tribe and they would be compelled to put her to death at once before this calamity befell them.

There are pieces; the hat and skirt. Such a costume is worn by a disguised man called the "bicho" during a special dance. The women are afraid of the "bicho" and hide when is about. Such costumes are made and kept in the men's house when not being worn.
