Gilligan (Bob Denver) and the Skipper (Alan Hale Jr.) come across an ancient totem pole, built by the Kupaki headhunters. It so happens that the head atop the totem looks just like Gilligan, leading the first mate to ruefully conclude that he is a direct descendant of the Great God Mashuka. This remarkable resemblance turns out to be a lifesaver when a band of contemporary Kupaki headhunters invades the island and takes everyone captive (Incidentally, two of the hostile natives are played by ballplayers Jim Lefebvre and Al Ferrara of the LA Dodgers!)
