From the point of view of the explorers of this section of the thick rain forest,
They were attacked by uncivilized savage native people who made off with Ron.
They armed themselves with guns and flashlights...
But where would they begin to look for him?
To a man, they thought... 'Hope he isn't Meat In The Pot!'
MEAT IN THE POT
The tribal elder was known to be a serious minded leader who put his needs last.
He was beloved by the tribe members... his willingness to share was the best example.
Meat is scarce deep in this thick jungle, so capturing something delicious puts sharing to the test.
Just this once, the elder kept a little more for himself... white men tasted too good to share, really!
