Endocannibalism


Cannibalism is the terrifying practice of a person eating another person. It’s horrifying to us, but for some cultures, eating the body of a deceased loved one was the best way to come to terms with their death. This is referred to as endocannibalism.

It’s not a common practice specific to any culture; it’s something that various cultures and tribes have been discovered in doing all over the world.

Some feel as though the best way to say goodbye to a loved one is apparently cutting them up, eating them, and digesting them.

It is a way to make use of their body, as well as absorb some of what they left behind. There’s no right way to be an endocannibalist.
