Abstract

The accounts of Hans Staden, Jean de Lery and others concerning Tupinamba cannibalism in the 16th century are analyzed in light of William Arens's (1979: 22-31) criticisms of their work. Data, both internal and external to these accounts, is examined in order to check their reliability. This analysis demonstrates that Arens's assertions concerning these authors are without substance [cannibalism, Tupinamba, Hans Staden, Brazilian Indians, William Arens].
