Tribes that live in the rainforest will generally eat whatever’s available to them.

Their diets will vary depending on where the rainforest is located – there are many different countries that have rainforests, and the plants and animals aren’t the same in all of them!

What Do Rainforest Tribes Eat?
Obviously, we can’t say specifically, as it varies from tribe to tribe. Here are some of the most common sources of food for rainforest tribespeople, though:

  • Nuts and seeds
  • Fruit and berries
  • Vegetables and roots (including the cassava plant, which is grown as a crop)
  • Fish
  • Insects and bugs
  • Birds
  • Deer
  • Alligators
  • Monkeys
  • Wild boar

How Do Tribes Cook Their Meat? Meat is usually cooked in one of three ways - smoked, boiled, or barbecued. Tougher meats will need boiling so that they become more tender, whereas things like boar can be barbecued - just like a hog roast!

Hope this helps!
