TUBATULABAL
A group of Native Americans inhabiting the area around Lake Isabella are known as the Tubatulabal. The name Tübatulabal (“a people that go to the forest to gather tubat (piñon nuts)”) loosely translates as "pine-nut eaters."

What Native American Tribes Were Eating In the Old West
Nothing about cannibalism, but some of these foods don't sound very appetizing!

I don't know what's worse Cortez who killed the Aztecs or the Aztecs who practiced human sacrifice. Then again if it weren't for smallpox Cortez may have been the one who wound up being killed. Why Neil Young is so upset with Cortez beats the hell out of me. The song sounds cool, but the sentiment doesn't really work. Cortez might have been bad, but the Aztecs were every bit as bad. The world is better off as a result of the explorations of Columbus and Cortez and at this point it's all water under the bridge. Painting the Aztecs as anything other than despicable makes no sense and although Cortez was no hero either, nor were the Conquistadors, nor the Spanish missionaries, they weren't true villains either. History can't be changed and complaining about something based on an incomplete understanding of what actually happened makes no sense!

Good point. Cortez was no worse than the Aztecs and 98% of the Aztecs that died weren't killed by Cortez. It was smallpox which did most of them in. Entire civilizations were wiped out by smallpox. If the disease had worked against the Europeans instead of the Native Americans, history would be very different, but sometimes there are unexpected plot twists which change things forever.

The Problem with DNA Testing for Native American Heritage w/Shannon O'Loughlin | Joe Rogan
This lady dances around the issue of genetics and Joe makes it easy on her. If a person is not a genetic descendant of an indigenous group, then one is not a member of that group except as a result of some mental gymnastics which people often engage in. The problem is determining what percentage of your genetics must be from that indigenous group in order for you to qualify as a group member. Many people are less than ten percent Native American, but I wouldn't say that they truly qualify as Native American. Another problem is that DNA tests aren't sensitive enough to determine membership in a specific tribe and there are between 500 and 800 tribes!

deathvalleyjake: Mental gymnastics is the most popular sport in the land of make-believe and the scary thing is that the USA is rapidly turning into the land of make-believe thanks to all the woketards floating around.

Pterodactyl Creature Spotted in 1800s Arizona
Was the thunderbird from Native American mythology actually a pterodactyl? Probably not, but you never know.
