THE MEASLES CANNIBAL. I
Method of a Vancouver Island Tribe
to Drive Away Disease.
A few years ago an epidemic of
measles broke out among the Indian
tribes living on Vancouver island. in
British Columbia, not far from Fort
Rupert. and the shamans or medicine
men came to the concltsion that a can
nibal sorcerer, whom they termed the
"hamatsu" (measles cannibal), was
slaying their children to eat them and
that he would continue to do so until
he was killed.
As they could not slay a ghost In his
own person they arranged a ceremony
in which one of their number posed as
the cannibal and was treated as they
would have liked to treat the real foe.
This fact of a substitute was, of
course, not made public, only the med
icine men knowing the truth of the
Against a wall of rock was painted
an imitation opening. in the center of
which the "cannibal" was fastened.
At the proper time, after going
through various incantations, a cover
ing was jerked away. exposing the
cannibal apparently springing through,
the solid roch. He pe l romptly grasp
ed by two ef the priests. who dragged
hinr out and rushed him through a fire
which was burning in front of the
place and which was surrounded by
all the members of the tribe beating
driuns and singing at the top of their;;
voices. By somc jngzlery the canni
bal was got rid of, a-nd the people were
told that he had flown away through
the air and would not come back.
After this ceremony had been re
peated several times to put an end to
other epidemics, which were only too
prevalent among the Indians, it grew
into a sort of annual affair, managed
by the members of a secret society
whose members know that the sup
posed "hamatsu" was only a man.
