Native American Vulture Mythology

Vultures are viewed negatively in most Native American tribes. In some tribes, they are considered unclean and symbols of death. In others, seeing vultures flying is considered an omen of danger or strife. In legends, Vulture usually plays the role of an aggressive troublemaker who lies, cheats, hoards resources that should belong to everyone, or uses his large size to bully other birds.

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.
