William Byun Monday Section Weekly Reflection 6 Shepard Krech III does a proper job in his book, The Ecological Indian: Myth and History , in explaining his views of the Native Americans and their relationship with nature. His beliefs, however, have created uproar amongst critics who believe that Native Americans were actually ecologically responsible and in tune with nature. Krech brings in various examples within the passages that support his beliefs which Kimberly Tallbear backs up in her own review. Krech’s argument has elicited many strong responses not only because he seems to be blaming the Native Americans for a “manipulated continent,” [ The Ecological Indian: Myth and History, 122] but he also seems to “try to ‘cancel out’ White atrocities,” [ Shepard Krech’s The Ecological Indian: One Indian’s Perspective, 2] and his argument seems to have political implications regarding Indian claims to authority over natural resource management in a subtle yet influential way, as seen by the strong responses to his writing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
