I respect these people's knowledge but I am glad I'm vegetarian.

Love stinging nettle soup. ( ( d0n't follow the recipe in "Mrs Beeton", wo suggests that they should be cooked for half an hour.
As for the rest, I am vegan.
Love native costumes and face painting. It has all the power of tradition behind it.

Sustainability is what it is all about...growing your own, organic foods without the interference from the government trying to capitalize on GMO foods that are making us sick to help keep the medical corporations going...a vicious cycle. We need to learn from indigenous peoples and we would benefit from no longer buying processed foods and live in intentional communities turning our landscapes into vegetable gardens with permaculture methods.

Thanks Cal for the interesting article. Read and noted. I love nettle soup and see no reason why I wouldn't try each and every item at least once. While stationed in Hawaii during the late 60's I was fed cat meat by a chinese family and dog by a filipino family. The cat tasted like rabbit and the dog meat had a chewy texture but both tasted good. Now before I get slammed by the pet owners here at Care2, I do want to say I had no idea what I was eating at the time and was only told after I had eaten the meal.

Noted, and thanks Cal. They are probably eating one of the healthiest diets in the world. BTW nettles grow in many areas of the world and people use them for tea or steam the young, tender leaves to eat. as well as making soup.
