When,for the duration of the final century, wars among the various tribes ceased, thereal significance of the rite vanished, but the superstitious belief thatthe symbolic figures meant long life to the person so tattooed, re-mained prominently in the minds of the folks. About the time that the appropriate of the honored warrior to the exclu-sive use of the Tattooing Ceremonies came to an end, a new condi-tion arose which materially changed the character of the rite.
