Cuhtahlatah

Cuhtahlatah was a Cherokee woman who lived during the period of the American Revolutionary War. Her name means “wild hemp”. When her husband was killed in battle, she grabbed his tomahawk and attacked the enemy, screaming “Kill! Kill!”. Her people had been in retreat, but her actions inspired them to rally and they gained victory in the battle. Her story is contained in the Wahnenauhi manuscript of 1889.

Freeze dried food is a Native Invention. The Inca of Peru used to preserve potatoes using a freeze-dry process. They would put them on mountain terraces, and the solar radiation and extremely cold temperatures created a freeze-dried product that lasted indefinitely.
