Were the kalinagos cannibals?

No, the kalinagos were not really cannibals.....That was an invented theory by the non-Amerindians. (a further explanation will be given...please wait till i put in these further explanation)
the kalinagoes were referred to as cannibals by the Europeans because when Christopher Columbus's men went ashore the island of Dominica, it was said that they found human limbs scattered around the caribs settlement......the limbs were most likely animal limbs. most of the bones were human's own. they were found in pits in some huts. it was a tradition for their dead families to be burry there. they were in a sittin position and had their presious things thrown in the pit with them.
