The second step that the characters must go through is overcoming Western ideology. Wastefulness is deep into Western ideology where overruling and excesses are common.

Dunbar first participated in a spectacular buffalo hunt, we can see the extremely wasteful of white hunters as they killed the buffalo to take only the fur, leather and they left the rest to be rotten. This is in high contrast to the Indians, where they utilize everything in the buffalo such as the meat for food, the fur and leather for clothes, and even the bonds for tools. This was similarly portrayed in Pocahontas when the servant threw the good meat to the Governor Radcliffe’s pet pug, but the dog would not touch the meat at all
