BACK H. A. Wickham, ‘Notes on the Soumoo or Woolwa Indians, of Blewfields River, Mosquito Territory’, Journal of the Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, xxiv  (1895), 201. here Woolwa ‘Frequently at night, after the first sleep, the men would gather round the fires from their respective quarters in the lodge, and, as they warmed themselves in the flames from the chill of the night air, would enjoy some yarn with a quiet chuckle’” While ‘first sleep’ is mentioned in this account there is no indication as to when this actually occurs and thus whether it conforms to Ekirch’s conception of segmented sleep.
