The Mystery of the BeothukNo-one really knows what happened to the Beothuk Native Americans of Newfoundland. Really the only thing known is that they LOVED the color red. They covered evrything they owned on red. The Beothuk encountered Vikings, Portugese, British, and French peoples. But then they suddenly started to rapidly decline, most likely from starvation. The last few Beothuk were taken by the British as prisoners for killing and mutilating British men.THE LAST KNOWN BEOTHUK DIED OF TUBERCULOSIS IN 1829.
