Concerning the Shom Peṅ, we heard that though resembling the Nicobarese in appearance, they use a different language.
It consists of feasting, dancing, and singing, as do most of the Nicobarese observances.
When this work is done, the Nicobarese are employed in erecting huts, to serve the traders as bazaars.
In the same way the Nicobarese, according to Man, can distinguish a member of each of the six tribes of the archipelago by smell.
They are monogamous, and, unlike the Nicobarese, marry for life.
This man was perhaps, on the whole, the best specimen physically of a Nicobarese that we came across.
This is done by the Nicobarese, Pueblo Indians, and other peoples.
He told us, however, that they are similar in appearance to the Nicobarese, but wear garments of rattan and bark only.
Suicide is not recognised as an institution of Nicobarese life, but cases of it do occur somewhat occasionally.
He was nursed and buried by the Nicobarese, who would not allow the Indian servants to approach him.
