Journey Breakdown 105-109 PM
  • The company departed from our homes in the
    University Settlement, immediately taking note of
    the cool, autumn weather. Following a path along
    the great Main River, we admired our settlements
    enormous, white watchtower. On the river there
    were many natives traveling in swift boats and
    canoes. Amazed at their speed, we continued
    onward as we crossed a bridge over the Main River.

  • After crossing the bridge, we continued on the
    bank of the Main Rivers tributary, the Willow
    River. As we hiked, we saw numerous hills
    surrounded by small boating ports near the river
    complex. Out of curiosity, some of our members
    tried eating some native berries, but found the
    taste to be quite foul. After many minutes of
    walking, we rested near the bank of the river,
    conversing and enjoying music from our iPods and
    the violin.

117-120 PM
  • Some of the members were growing hungry because
    they hadnt packed enough snacks for the journey,
    so they started scavenging the ground on the
    riverbank for food. We saw a native traveling
    with some breed of dog, as well as a small
    squirrel pattering across the ground. We crossed
    a shallow section of the small University River
    and continued our journey on its bank. We took
    great care in analyzing the fall leaves and
    bushes of this foreign land. While crossing into
    the land of Bone, we saw a native symbol of a
    bird painted on a rock in a small creek.

  • Bone was finally in sight, and we were amazed! It
    was a massive village with tall outer walls,
    similar to that in a fortress, set up on a
    mountain that was surrounded by many rivers.
    There was also a gigantic boating port near the
    mountain. Already, our initial conceptions of
    natives being uncivil and disorganized were
    fading. Coming to one of the outer walls, we
    attempted entering through a small gate, but with
    no luck. While searching for another entrance
    along the wall, we came upon a group of three
    native men.

126-129 PM (First Interview)
  • While speaking with these natives, one of which
    was smoking a curious plant from a small pipe, we
    had learned that they worked in the village with
    many, many other natives of various tribes and
    colors. They said that they came to the village
    each day from their homes by swimming and hiking,
    and that it was often aggravating because their
    were too many chieftains and not enough common
    natives to keep up with their demands. Clearly
    their was some form of hierarchy in the village.
    When we finished our conversation, we gave them a
    peace medal and continued searching for an open

  • We finally found an open gate along the wall, but
    decided to take a small rest before we entered
    the village. Along one section of a wall was a
    stable which housed many different breeds of
    horses. After our rest, we entered into the
    village and made our way into a large hut that
    the natives called the Cage. In it, many were
    socializing and studying. It appeared to be a
    favored place to gather. We eventually exited the
    Cage and continued through the great village. As
    we walked, we saw hundreds of flags about the
    village we became very curious as to why there
    were so many. Next we came to a native woman
    sitting inside a large wooden circle.

134-136 PM (Second Interview)
  • The woman within the wooden circle was a native
    called Erika. We found out that she welcomes
    newcomers and passes notes along to various parts
    of the village. She said that she does not live
    in the village, but that she hikes to Bone most
    mornings. We also found out from her that the
    flags hung around the village symbolize all of
    the tribes represented by the natives that come
    to Bone hundreds of tribes have come through
    this village! When we finished speaking with
    Erika, we gave her a peace medal and continued

137-143 PM
  • In the village we found a general store where
    food was kept, and one of our members traded for
    some native food, finding it to be very pleasing.
    We then climbed a hill to a higher level of the
    village and saw natives of many colors black,
    white, brown This place was very diverse. We
    found some women trading animal skin sacks and
    precious jewelry in a small tent. One of our
    members found another general store and traded
    for a native treat that was like cold ice in a
    small cone. Continuing to explore, we found a
    small cave that was adorned with many tribal
    markings on its walls. Getting tired, we found a
    comfortable area to sit and relax, when just then
    our guide Joe had spotted a native that he knew.

144-146 PM (Third Interview)
  • We had left our sitting area to talk with Joes
    friend, Pat, who was with a few other natives. We
    learned that Pat leads a small task force in the
    village that repairs things. Pat said that he
    rides his horse to the village each day, and that
    on this day he had scalped some enemies on his
    way to the village (our group was a bit
    frightened by this). Pat also said that some
    natives do live in the village and sleep where we
    had just sat, but that most of the natives we saw
    only traveled through the village each day. After
    our somewhat unnerving talk with Pat, we gave him
    a peace medal, and left the village.

fellow tribe members
147-152 PM
  • We exited the village through a gate that led to
    a small cliff-path that wound down the
    mountainside. From the top of the cliff we could
    see the rivers below with many natives traveling
    on them. When we reached the base of the
    mountain, we analyzed a large native statue on
    the riverbank. We also viewed a rather
    rambunctious, entertaining squirrel. Looking back
    at the walls of the village, we saw a section
    decorated with many bright tribal markings. The
    great village truly was a place of diversity and

153-159 PM
  • We hiked about the same route we had taken to the
    village, though we followed the Locust River,
    rather than the Willow River, to the Main River.
    We crossed the large bridge over the Main River,
    and saw many traveling natives as we followed the
    path to the University settlement. We had finally
    made it home!

The expedition members leaving the land of Bone
  • From our meticulous observations and notes of the
    village of Bone, we have deemed it an inhabitable
    territory. However, as it is already occupied by
    the natives, assuming that we wish to co-exist
    with them, we would have to continue to develop a
    stronger relationship. From what we have seen,
    they are a surprisingly civilized people they
    have built their own boating ports, village, and
    protective walls, they maintain an economy of
    trade of items such as food, supplies, and
    valuables, they appear to have some form of a
    hierarchal government, and they our extremely
    accepting of different native tribes as well as
    non-native newcomers. It is our wish to convince
    the chieftains of the village that it would be of
    benefit to have more people actually live in the
    village, allowing for an extremely diverse and
    prosperous community to develop and flourish.
