It has been mentioned that the wilderness will be consumed by "a web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities". The author uses ethos, logos, and pathos to construct and strengthen his argument, which is that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry. Jimmy Carter demonstrates the use of ethos to build his argument, which is that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry. For example, he quoted "Twenty years later, I signed the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, monumental legislation that safeguarded more than 100 million acres of national parks, refuges, and forests in Alaska". The author tries to point out in the quote that Jimmy Carter safeguarded national parks, refuges, and forests in Alaska by signing the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.
The Mi’kmaqs are a committed, hardworking tribe, because they do things for themselves like hunting and making shelter. I have proved that the Mi’kmaqs and the Inuits have many similarities. But they are different in their own ways.They are both very hard working tribes. What I learned from this research is so many things about the both tribes. What I think about these tribes is it is so interesting to see very different tribes having things that are similar to each other.
Prior to the colonization of the Americas, the buffalo was crucially important to the Sioux life until its near extinction. Nearly every activity, for instance, hunting, praying, cooking, making art, sewing, teaching, singing and celebrating embraced and respected the buffalo. Certainly, the buffalo remained the epicenter of the Lakota Sioux life and maintained its status as the survival source of the Indians originating from the past to the present era. The role that the buffalo upheld in regards to the culture, livelihood, and identity of the Lakota was incalculable (Ostler,

Though different Native American Tribes have different mythologies, and rituals, the basic of the sacred is the same – the sacred, is worshipped through rituals, and is always related to their source of food (Lecture Notes, 9/3/15). Therefore, how a group hunts, or gathers their food source is of great importance to the Native Americans, for it is the basis for survival, nourishment, and prosperity. The Plains Indians worship the sacred in an ad hoc way, and erect impermanent structures to mark their places of rituals. This style suits there needs better due to the fact that they are hunters, and follow the heard across the plains. Their meat source (e.g.
People may learn a lot from society today, but there are always things that no one really can learn without the help from nature. Transcendentalists use nature to learn life a lot. One famous Transcendentalists wrote many stories about nature. One of these stories being The Pond in Winter does talk about a pond in the winter season, but this story has more meaning that just a pond in winter.

Out of many concerns of things in Alaska environmentally, one of the most daunting is the Bristol Bay dilemma. It has been a problem for very long, and seems to be getting more controversy than many other issues. This issue is about if a pebble mine should be built there or not. Many people provide the argument about how the Alaska bay doesn’t need to be put at risk especially, because it’s a valuable food source. Bristol bay is a salmon hotspot!
It is a well-known problem in Michigan, the ships, which travel around in other bodies of water and collect mollusks and species that are not normally found in the Great Lakes, they then end up in Lake Michigan and cause a lot of problems in the ecosystem. This causes a lot of people to be against water transportation systems that involves ships from outside the Great Lakes. Future challenges to this transportation system are mostly environmentally based. People in Northern Michigan are very passionate about our Great Lakes; anything that puts them at risk is tough to get away with. But there are other challenges they could face in the future.
Even to this day their lives continue to evolve around the polar bear, caribou, fish, seal, whale, and walrus. The vast Alaskan land is the host to their communities, and the northernmost areas, along with the extreme climate, rather than being a barrier for survival, is a natural realm for birds, fish, mammals, and natural resources. These populations place a great value on bartering and family connections, both of which rely on respect and communication. Labor is divided by gender, and competitions and strength and resistance games, along with song duels, are part of traditional culture. Habitation also tends to be underground, which helps in trapping the cold air out of the premises.
John Colter and Tom Murphy were both very amazing explores, but in many ways they were different from each other. In 1808 John Colter discovered Yellowstone National Park and Tom Murphy explored also explored Yellowstone National Park in the early 1900. John Colter also got to join Lewis and Clark in their famous expedition. John Colter and Tom Murphy were very similar in many different ways. They both became very famous explores by difficult journeys they made.
In the desert food was obtained through small game hunting and intensified foraging. Native Americans lived in caves and rock shelters. “In addition to stone tools, there are objects of wood, hide, and fiber, wonderfully preserved for thousands of years in the climate” (Faragher pg 9). The desert culture spread west and developed closely populated settled communities. Forest culture called “Forest Efficiency” because they had a rich and sophisticated knowledge of the land and how to use
