thats why i said compared to US
they were noble caretakers. We knowingly and willfully do horrible things to our home which is way more damage
than a brush fire, and natives leaving animal waste, was not waste at all, they knew the wolfs got theirs, the beetles and grubs got there's and
they knew the animals they killed returned to earth. They saw humans and animals and nature itself connected as one, so to them nothing ever went to
waste, as your post pointed out today we think of animal waste as waste, that is simply not the case.
a buffalo is killed the meat and fat and skin are stripped and some bones are taken for tools and weapons but most of the guts and leftovers are left.
The wolves and birds and other scavengers get a meal, then the bugs come and clean the up the rest, those bugs are important in the ecosystem, they
feed fish, birds and are involved in the growth of plants and fungus. So now the grass grows and the next generation of buffalo eat, and the next
generation of human eats. It seems the natives understood nature better than we ever will.
So do think it was coincidence they had a low population, in alot of tribes only the best men were to take wife's(not saying this rule, as all rules
were not bent and broken from time to time) and the weak men with no respect or were not deemed great warriors could take no wife's and make no
children. I believe this was a form of population control, weather it was intentional or not, i dont know. either way they kept the population at a
sustainable number, not massively overpopulating like we do, and in some areas paying degenerates for popping out as many kids as they can fit in
there trailer. so in the end the natives did way more for the earth than we have which makes them way more noble than we will ever be.
