As in 'the natives are restless', indicating the behaviour of the non-European inhabitants of a country being introduced to colonialism. Generally not pink-skinned.

The erstwhile popularity of National Geographic in school libraries was due mainly, I believe, to the fact that whilst Caucasian female nudity was taboo in English speaking countries (outside of fine art), it was perfectly permissable to display the naked forms of women if their skin was of a different hue. Usually they were in Africa, though I do remember as a young boy going to see a film where the accompanying B movie (ask your parents if this concept is unfamilar) was a documentary about Japanese pearl divers. Before long the well formed women all stripped to the waist and plunged into the water, where the camera followed them in their search for likely oysters. Their water borne hair and bouyant upper torsos made a lasting impression on me. Obviously.

The National Geographic women tended to be carrying water, preparing food or suckling kids (human, goat, whichever). Children are tricky creatures to keep still long enough to draw, so we see our native woman taking a break from preparing one of those food stuffs which require pounding with a stick thing. Nice scarification on the cheek there!
