We can see clearly the consequences for indigenous people, such as American Indians, Innuits (Eskimos), and Australian Aborigines, when their culture is undermined by sustained contact with Western industrial society: the social apathy, the high incidence of suicide, crime, and drug abuse.
In another account, an Inuk named Eveeshuk described "one man's body when found by the Innuits flesh all on and not mutilated except the hands sawed off at the wrists--the rest a great many had their flesh cut off as if some one or other had cut it off to eat" (Hall Collection, Fieldnotes, Book #34, 1869).
