When it comes to what our ancestor-Americans ate, we mostly hear about a certain period of time: after the white people arrived. And even that's largely wrong. According to the Smithsonian, Native Americans and colonial Europeans weren't exactly sharing mashed potatoes and pie: it was more along the lines of venison, porridge, and various types of wild- and water-fowl. But hey, turkey was probably there, so at least we got that much right.
