I'm guessing some paleo's undoubtably ate a lot of tubers.

Kalahari Bushmen, Australian Aborigines, Papua New Guinean's all ate a lot of tubers. These were mainly gathered by the women.

Sweet potatoes can be eaten raw without problems if we're talking this vegetable:

Oca can also be eaten raw:

Taro and this type of yam cannot be eaten raw:
