Geophagia Explained Geophagia, also known as geophagy,  is the practice of eating earth or soil-like substrates such as clay or chalk. It occurs in non-human animals where it may be a normal or abnormal behaviour, and also in humans, most often in rural or preindustrial societies among children and pregnant women. Geophagia is nearly universal around the world in tribal and traditional rural societies although apparently it has not been documented in Japan or Korea. In the ancient worldseveral writers noted the phenomenon of geophagia.

April 10, Mass Graves of Residential School Children Identified — Independent Inquiry Launched We are gathered today to publicly disclose the location of twenty eight mass graves of children who died in Indian Residential Schools across Canadaand to announce the formation of an independent, non-governmental inquiry into the death and disappearance of children in these schools.
We estimate that there are hundreds, and possibly thousands, of children buried in these grave sites alone. The Catholic, Anglican and United Churchand the government of Canada, operated the schools and hospitals where these mass graves are located.
We therefore hold these institutions and their officers legally responsible and liable for the deaths of these children. We have no confidence that the very institutions of church and state that are responsible for these deaths can conduct any kind of impartial or real inquiry into them.
Accordingly, as of April 15,we are establishing an independent, non-governmental inquiry into the death and disappearance of Indian residential school children across Canada. We call upon indigenous people on the land where these graves are located to monitor and protect these sites vigilantly, and prevent their destruction by occupational forces such as the RCMP and other government agencies.
Our Tribunal will commence on April 15 by gathering all of the evidence, including forensic remains, that is necessary to charge and indict those responsible for the deaths of the children buried therein.
Once these persons have been identified and detained, they will be tried and sentenced in indigenous courts of justice established by our Tribunal and under the authority of hereditary chiefs. The IHRTGC will be asking the United Nations to declare these mass graves to be protected heritage sites, and will invite international human rights observers to monitor and assist its work.
