Yes i agree.  My argument is that we won't find the solution in aboriginal economies because they have found sustainability in pre-industrial economic ways of life.  I'm sure there are some if not many things we can learn from them, but what we need are sustainable solutions to industrial economies.  Things like green energy and ways to power cities and vehicles etc.
What you can find in some aboriginal communities especially where modern treaties are being negotiated is the opportunity to try new resource management approaches that are rooted communally and are based on traditional ecological knowledge.

Heck, I know salmon habitat and enhancement guerillas who carry spawning gravel by backpack to local creeks in their effort to do what DFO refuses to do and even worse won't allow.

What we could really stand to learn from the more outspoken indigenous is to tell Ottawa to **** off and assert a little autonomy.  Popular mostly non-indigenous revolutions coalesced around indigenous aspirations are not without precedent.
