Cannibalism is the act of a human consuming the flesh of another human. The practice of cannibalism, also known as anthropophagy, dates back to early human history but coined it’s name after a West Indies tribe, the Carib, who are well known to have eaten the flesh of their acquaintances. The Spanish name for the Carib, who could be located in Southern America, is Caribales or Canibales, which is where the term cannibalism derived from. Cannibalism is practiced all across the world for different reasons; some see it ritualistic, Australian Aboriginals viewed it as an act of respect for the deceased and for some, it’s just a means to an end in a dire situation when no other food is available.
