Native Tradition, Evolution and Creation.
Pierotti, Raymond; Wildcat, Daniel R.
Winds of Change, v12 n2 p70-73 Spr 1997
Presents evidence that Native peoples' profound understanding of ecology, the nature of individuality, and resulting differences in survival and reproduction led them to develop ideas of evolution through natural selection long before Europeans. Suggests that in order to survive, Native Americans must not allow Western ways of thought, which are disconnected from nature, to become dominant among Native peoples. (LP)
