The word "Cannibals" was originally used as a name of certain people. How are they called today?
Dayaks of Borneo
Many historians believe that cannibalism was rare or even non existent among Carib people. In 1503 Queen Isabella ruled that only people who were better off under slavery (especially cannibals) could legally be taken as slaves. This provided Spaniards an incentive for identifying various groups as cannibals to enslave them.
