Dances With Myths

The Professor links to an item on American Indians versus environmentalists:

Navajo tribes say environmentalists not welcome on reservations. “Navajo President Joe Shirley Jr. and Hopi lawmakers say environmentalists’ efforts could hurt the tribes’ struggling economies by slowing or stopping coal mining. . . . ‘Environmentalists are good at identifying problems but poor at identifying feasible solutions,’ Shirley said in a news release. ‘Most often they don’t try to work with us but against us, giving aid and comfort to those opposed to the sovereign decision-making of tribes.’”

Wow, centuries of  the American Indians’ pristine life in harmony with nature just shot to hell.
