- For the episode of the same name, see Anasazi (episode)
Anthropologists who studied the remains of the Anasazi believed they practiced cannibalism. They learned this by studying remains which had been polished at the ends. This indicated that they were cooked in a pot. (TXF: "Our Town") In the episode "Our Town" there was indeed a tribe of aboriginals who practiced cannibalism, unfortunately the tribe was from New Guinea.
The third chapter of Native American Beliefs and Practices was devoted to the Anasazi. It was titled, "The Anasazi - An Entire Native American Indian Culture Vanishes Without a Trace - History as Myth and end of the world symbolism. Apocalypse and The Sixth Extinction." (TXF: "The Sixth Extinction II: Amor Fati")
- Note that, in reality, the Anasazi actually migrated and became what is now known as the modern Hopi.
