Natives in the PNW used to only have to work- hunt/fish/forage like 3-4 hours per week to feed the entire tribe.

They've lived here sustainably for thousands of years, then compare that to the last ~40 years where we've killed off something like 60% of wildlife and cut down half the forests.

Natives in the pnw are terrible wasters of wildlife. Most tribes anyway. Yaks, lummis, mucks. Their "subsistence" hunting often involves killing trophy elk at winter feed stations, illegally selling meat to asian restaurants, leaving nets full of fish to rot, etc etc.

If you call living in your own filth, dead by 40 from parasites' etc....sustainable then more power to ya.

You're living in a digital age cocoon romanticizing some shit yuo have zero clue about. Those injuns would have sucked off a bull moose to have out lifestyle - and flipper the Bird at the planet.

Ok, let's assume that ridiculous lie is true, what was their standard of living? What did they do when their kid got cholera, or their cut got infected? White people worked more than 3-4 hours a week because they were actively improving conditions for their descendents.

Meanwhile, I don't see many natives rushing off to renounce their modern textiles and firearms.

Living like stone age savages without actually improving your lot isn't a source of pride.
