    I, for one, would like to have proof of claim that “all” Native Peoples engaged in cannibalism. Please share your proof relating to this claim. Thank you.

  • William Quinton Platt III says:

    I doubt we know for certain that “all” natives were cannibals, since they did not have much in the way of records to leave for us to study since they had very little in the way of ability to create records other than painting on rocks.

    There is an excellent account of Spaniards who were shipwrecked near Tampa, FL who traveled all the way to California on rafts or on foot @ 1530 AD. Cabeza de Vaca is the name of the soldier/author. Most of the tribes he met were cannibals and held slaves.
