Deer stew in Evil...and His Brother Ziggy

One recurring bit is worth noting in Evil...and His Brother Ziggy, the Native-themed episode of Life. Detective Crews finds a container of deer stew in the refrigerator of the victim's trailer. He begins eating it and refers to it several times thereafter.

What does this tell us? That people who eat venison stew generally live in rural areas where they can hunt deer. That they're often Indians or other people who live off the land. That they generally aren't white or Latino New Agers who live in rundown parts of a New Jersey city. All of which bolsters my theory that Danny Trejo's character in Sherrybaby is an Indian.
