Pemmican is a tasty high-protein treat that’s perfect for snacking, traveling, hiking, camping, and for disasters or other crisis events, where cooking meals may be difficult. Traditional recipes for Indian pemmican usually calls for a mixture of shredded jerky, dried berries and nuts, along with a bit of melted fat to hold it all together. The fast-food idea caught on with the Hudson’s Bay Company and became a standard feature in the North American fur trade industry. To eat pemmican Native American style, pop a little bit into your mouth and chew it just about forever, sort of like chewing gum. For even longer term storage, I sometimes use raisins in place of fat in the traditional recipe.
In a blender, whiz together equal parts of pulverized-to-a-powder jerky, ground dried berries, and chopped nuts of your choice.
Another delicious alternative to animal fat is peanut butter, which provides more sustenance than the fat-free version.
Lacking traditional containers such as animal intestines or skin parfleche bags to store them in, wrap the pemmican pieces in wax paper.
If you do try the combination coconut butter and peanut butter please let us know how it works out, would love to hear about it! My mother made this with fat,jerky and berries, along with spices such as salt, pepper, chili powder. The Indians were ‘presented’ to British Consul Roger Casement in their Putumayo homeland in southern Colombia in 1910. Casement, who had been sent by the British government to investigate atrocities in the Amazon during the rubber boom, brought the pair to the UK to publicize the horrors he uncovered. Sky-rocketing demand for Amazonian rubber was kick-started when US company Goodyear discovered vulcanization – a process that makes rubber hard enough to use for car tires. In just 12 years, Casement estimated that 30,000 indigenous people had been enslaved, tortured, and murdered to provide for Europe and the United States’ growing demand for rubber. Many of today’s uncontacted Indians are descended from the survivors of the rubber boom atrocities, who fled into remote headwaters to escape the killings, torture and epidemics that decimated the indigenous population. It is not known what became of the two slaves, whose parting words to the Daily News were, ‘London is very wonderful, but the great river and the forest, where the birds fly, is more beautiful.
Survival International Director Stephen Corry said today, ‘The rubber boom may seem like remote history, but its effect is still with us.
We help tribal peoples defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.
There are about 500 different Aboriginal peoples in Australia, each with their own language and territory and usually made up of a large number of separate clans.


Archaeologists believe that the Aboriginals first came to the Australian continent around 45,000 years ago. Aboriginals themselves, however, trace their creation back to the Dreamtime, an era long past when the earth was first formed. Aboriginals’ land was invaded from the end of the 18th century onwards, with catastrophic consequences for them. Before the invasion, Aboriginal people lived throughout Australia, although the highest population density was along the coast.
Evidence suggests that these communities managed their environment carefully to ensure a steady supply of food, bringing wild yams into gardens which they irrigated, for example, or building artificial dykes to extend the range of eels.
Those Aboriginal tribes who lived inland in the bush and the desert lived by hunting and gathering, burning the undergrowth to encourage the growth of plants favoured by the game they hunted.
Today more than half of all Aboriginals live in towns, often on the outskirts in terrible conditions.
Ever since the British first invaded, Aboriginal peoples have had their land stolen from them or destroyed.
Most has still to be returned today, and the loss of their land has had a devastating social and physical impact on Aboriginal peoples.
The initial invasions also sparked huge waves of disease that killed thousands – many others were massacred.
During much of the 20th century, outright killings were replaced with a policy of removing Aboriginal children from their parents and giving them to white families or placing them in mission schools, to eradicate traces of Aboriginal culture and language. Today they still face racist attitudes, and there are periodic incidents of violence towards them, particularly affecting those in police custody. In 2007, publication of a report into sexual abuse and violence amongst Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory caused huge controversy. Survival also supported the campaign of the Mirarr people in the Northern Territory against a proposed uranium mine on their sacred land.
In the old days, it was considered essential for sustaining warriors and hunters on the trail.
The highest prices were paid for Native American-made pemmican that was stored in buffalo skin bags, called parfleches.
That way you entertain your mouth and extract every bit of goodness from the dehydrated meat, berries and nuts. If the electricity should ever go out long enough to affect the contents of the freezer, I will take the pemmican out of the freezer, and after making sure that it is perfectly dry, store it in a glass jar or plastic bag in a dark cool place. But then, during really high caloric demanding situations such as hiking, working, or coping with a disaster, you’d be wishing for that little extra fat, because it supplies a majority of the calories in pemmican.


A mixture of coconut butter and peanut butter may make a viable consistency during the lower temperature trips when you pack the pemmican.
Omarino was exchanged for a pair of trousers and a shirt; Ricudo was won in a game of cards. When the West began its marriage to the motor car, its love letters were written in Indian blood. In many places the great creatures changed themselves into sites where their spirits stayed. Here, people seem to have moved seasonally between permanent settlements near the sea and others at the headwaters of the coast rivers. In just over one hundred years from the first invasion of their land, their numbers were reduced from up to an estimated one million to only 60,000. Their generally poor living conditions mean that Aboriginal people have a far higher infant mortality rate and suicide rate and a lower life expectancy than the rest of the population, and they make up a disproportionate section of the prison population. Pemmican can be eaten out of hand, or added to soups, stews, or anything in need of an extra nutritional boost. It depends upon the temperature and humidity of the environment, the quality of ingredients, and how it is stored. It provoked a gross crime against humanity which was perpetrated by a British company in the Witoto area.
Many Aboriginal groups, such as the Martu of western Australia, have used the ruling to have their ownership of their ancestral lands recognized in law. Many of the measures in this programme, such as the removal of Aboriginal communities’ right to control access onto their lands, and the compulsory acquisition of some communities, stirred a great deal of resentment amongst Aboriginal people. The parfleches shrank as they dried, creating a kind of vacuum seal that helped to preserve the contents for years. Even though the food is low-volume, it it packs power because it is highly concentrated and loaded with protein. Immediately stir the mixture, working quickly to allow the melted fat to soak into the powdered ingredients before cooling. The parallel should not be exaggerated, but today there are still British companies, such as Vedanta Resources, planning the theft of tribal land, this time in India. Others, however, have failed to overcome the many legal hurdles placed in their way by the government’s land rights legislation.
