We visited one Indian site nearby where they had made a mound of oyster shells over 50 feet high.
The Indians pulled oysters out of the river, roasted them, and then threw the shells in a big pile, until it was a small mountain.
Today, we would "recycle" these shells to seed new oyster beds, particularly as the levels of calcium in the ocean declines.
Other "Native Americans" would settle in one area and then exploit the natural resources until they were exhausted - and then move on to more fertile territory.
When I was a kid back in the 1960's, we used to drive down route 81 in Pennsylvania as I recall.
The idea that certain peoples or races are more respectful of Mother Nature is something of a fraud.
For some this is a validation of their beliefs that we can improve our environment and our economy and put people back to work by mending older things as opposed to tossing stuff away in our "throwaway culture".
The underlying premise, of course, is that we in the West are awful, decadent people who are wasteful and are destroying the world.
All I can say is, stay away from the Tuesday dinner special. Our ancestors literally lived on a pile of their garbage. Our Native Americans were in touch with the land and never abused Mother Nature, right?
Well, it is a nice fantasy, but the reality is, they are pretty much like us evil Westerners.
A friend of mine harbors quaint notions in this regard.
