Tuckahoe ("Petrified Pemmican")

Title: Tuckahoe ("Petrified Pemmican")
Creator: Warren Dudar
Subject: Tuckahoe, Rock, Fungus, Pemmican
Description: Tuckahoe was assumed (incorrectly) to be remnants of buried pemmican; however, both leather and meat buried in shallow pits disintegrate readily as they are subjected to both dry and wet bacteria. Tuckahoe is almost always discovered under hardwood (usually former or present stands of poplar trees) and is usually discovered when the soils are being cultivated, during root removal.
