Although this story is only 50 years old, the primitive people who sacrificed young Rockefeller are living 1000 years ago, at least. It may be of interest to your list. Or not. As you wish.
I was JUST talking about this the other day. How fascinating!

I remember first hearing about Michael Rockefeller by reading an article in one of those 1960s men’s magazines, either “True” or “Argosy” — the article showed some photos, including a smiling Michael (I think in a canoe), another of Nelson Rockefeller being shown some objects, perhaps human bones, and a photo of the guy who purportedly had killed Michael and eaten part of him.

That was a very interesting story.
Those missionaries had their hands full with that group.
