Fun Stuff

From Distant Drums (1951)
Capt. Quincy Wyatt: An interesting thing about the way the Seminoles bury their warriors. The sit 'em up and put war paint on 'em, set a bowl of fresh food alongside of 'em and then stick their favorite weapon in their hands and then they cover 'em up. With a great chief like that over yonder, they throw in the first newborn child to be born after he died.
Lt. Richard Tufts: Why do they do a thing like that for?
Capt. Quincy Wyatt: Well, they believe when a man dies, his spirit leaves the body and enters that of the first newborn. And in regarding a chief that high like that, they don't want the spirit to be passed on down to somebody that ain't fit to carry it.
