What IS an Autonovore?

King Salmon Fishing in Alaska https://reelcamogirl.wordpress.com/2015/01/26/what-is-an-autonovore/ My last blog featured a new word. Autonovore.

I have gotten several questions about it so I will explain. Yes, I made it up.

The word Autonovore combines the words "autonomous" meaning, existing or capable of existing independently, and "vore" (from the word Carnivore.)

Autonovores are those people who want to grow, gather, produce and hunt their food. Self-Sufficient Hunter-Gatherers.

Yes, I submitted to the word to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary today.
