-7.WHO'S EATING WHO?
The story of the Donner party is one of the most tragic incidents in American frontier history. A group of about 90 migrants led by George Donner were caught in a blinding snowstorm in the mountains of California in 1846. Survivors had been forced to resort to eating the flesh of their dead comrades to live. Such eating of human flesh by humans is called cannibalism. The word comes from the Arawakan language name for the Carib Indians, who were well known for their practice of cannibalism. The word is also used in a zoological sense to refer to the eating of any animal by another member of the same species. Wolves, for instance, will devour each other when desperately hungry. Among humans, cannibalism has been widespread in prehistoric and primitive societies. It is still believed to be practised in remote areas of the island of New Guinea. It existed until recently in parts of Africa, Sumatra, Melanesia, and Polynesia; among various Indian tribes of the Americas; and among the aborigines of Australia and the Maoris of New Zealand.
