  5. 5. Examples: Ngo Another case of survival cannibalism occurred in 1945, when General Douglas MacArthur’s forces cut supply lines to Japanese troops stationed in the Pacific Islands. In one incident, Japanese troops were reported to have sacrificed the Arapesh people of northeastern New Guinea for food in order to avoid death by starvation (Tuzin 63). The most famous example of survival cannibalism in American history comes from the diaries, letters, and interviews of survivors of the California- bound Donner Party, who in the winter of 1846 were snowbound in the Sierra Nevada Mountains for five months. Thirty-five of eighty-seven adults and children died, and some of them were eaten (Hart 116–117; Johnson).

  11. 11. Doing Research on your Topic  Having chosen a concept and a focus for your explanation of it, begin your research to use at least two more credible sources for information on your concept.  This essay does not require a tedious search for multiple sources, but it does require you use and document at least three sources.  One of those sources will likely be The Hunger Games. If you use examples of your concept from the book, you must cite them.  A second source will be a dictionary or encyclopedia—the place you found a definition or two for your concept.  The final source is up to you. It could be a magazine (anecdote), a journal (statistics and graphs), or another credible source, hopefully one you found in the library. You must make sure that it is a credible source if you are offering it as factual evidence (Joe's blog, Wikipedia, yahoo answers are all unacceptable).
