Meet The Tribe In Brazil That Eats Dead People's Body

Read and see photos below;

When it comes to eating, endocannibalism refers to the behavior of the body in the same tribal group or location. Although, in this article, it is the behavior of a South American population, where endocannibalism has been practiced in the past. They commemorate their forefathers' deaths.

Endocannibalism was a common practice among the Wari people in western Brazil. The bodies of the other Wari people were always devoured in a mortuary. Refusing the practice, on the other hand, would be detrimental to the rest of the family.

In a show of sadness, Yanomamo eats the skeletons of its burned forefathers. Traditionally, these actions have been attributed to a craving for protein or even other foods.

The indigenous populations listed below are resistive to western influence and want to keep their traditions. The Yanomani is a naturalized tribe that believes that a man's spirit must be preserved even after his life has ended.

They believe that the dead can only rest in peace once family members have roasted and consumed the body.
