What environmental lessons could we learn from Native Americans?

    One of the most important ones is limits.

    The Native Americans (for the most part) did not take from their land until there was nothing left. They took only what they needed, and if they noticed that the supply of natural resources available in their environment was beginning to become depleted, they left and went somewhere else, giving that ecosystem time to replenish itself.

    The emphasis is on moderate consumption (only taking what we need) and on respecting nature’s limits (if you leave an ecosystem completely barren and destroyed you will never get the same ecosystem back no matter how long you wait.)
