Using the e-HRAF, read about eating in one culture from each of the following culture
areas: North American indigenous (Indians); South American indigenous
(Indians); Central American 20th century village; Australian aboriginal; Sub-Saharan
Africa; Northern or Central Asia. Based on what you read, formulate a clear and concise
simple theory about the social causes or consequences of eating practices across
cultures. [Your theory doesn’t have to be subtle, but it has to be sensible and clear, and
clearly based on what you read.] Explain how your theory is inductively based on what
you read, by supporting any inferences you make with data from each of the cultures.
