    Cannibalism, the consumption of members of one’s own species, is known to occur in over 1, species of animal life on earth, one of which is humanity. Long a staple of movies and television, sometimes for comic effect, cannibalism was not limited to Africa and South America, or the islands of the South : Larry Holzwarth. Of all the North American Indian tribes, the seventeenth-century Iroquois are the most renowned for their cruelty towards other human beings. Scholars know that they ruthlessly tortured war prisoners and that they were cannibals; in the Algonquin tongue the word Mohawk actually means "flesh-eater.".

    But as zoologist and author Bill Schutt shows in his new book, Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History, not all cultures have shared this taboo. In ancient China, for instance, human body parts.   Livers were cut out of still living victims and eaten. One female official developed a taste for male gentalia. (Look into the book called "Scarlet Memorial" by Zheng Yi for more accounts of cannibalism from a first-hand perspective.) Even more recently, cannibalism was committed during civil wars in Africa, notably in Liberia.

      So there you have it: Cannibalism has had a seemingly constant presence in history — even in the U.S.A. That doesn’t make it right or normal — in fact, it’s one of the worst things imaginable.   I was just reading some stories about the "Skraelings". Native people of North America whom the Vikings claim practiced cannibalism. Inuit tales of a tribe of cannibals exist as well. Perhaps cannibalism out of necessity? Anyway, there's plenty of anecdotal evidence regarding the practice.

Cannibalism, also called anthropophagy, eating of human flesh by humans. The term is derived from the Spanish name (Caríbales, or Caníbales) for the Carib, a West Indies tribe well known for its practice of cannibalism.

A widespread custom going back into early human history, cannibalism has been found among peoples on most continents.

The charge of cannibalism is a common insult, and it is likely that some alleged cannibal groups have merely been victims of popular fear and misrepresentation. Nevertheless, archaeological research suggests that ancient humans and societies did practice cannibalism, and it has been observed in Africa, North and South America, the South Pacific.
