We have historically persecuted and removed native Americans from their land. We need to take into account their perspective on historical lands, as well as their current lands, because it's the right thing to do. On a legal side, however, since they are sovereign states, that's what needs to happen period, on their land. Native religions are also heavily steeped in nature, so preserving their sacred lands is essentially giving them the right to free religion.

It's a disservece to talk about only the American Indians because there was others in the in history that help build America. It is important to incoporate the perspectives of Amrican Indians because what we do effects them and food, water, environment, ect. ways. It is important to have the input of Native Americans because again what we do effects them due to our laws, their land, their environment, food, water.

it's not okay because not only are the native people of Americans still around and still have an impact but they have a huge impact on society. It is important to incorporate the current perspectives of them so people know how much they contribute. it is important to include them in environmental decisions because if anything goes near or through their land it is important that not only do they have a say in what happens but that they are able to tell people how to go about it. they know their land better than anyone so it is important that we don't just assume things and they we are including them in these decisions. they also contribute a lot to agriculture and all of that stuff

Native peoples shouldnt only be talked about in history, because they are still people and still alive. Current prospectives of American Indians are important because what we do effects them as humans.

it is a disservice to only talk about the native peoples of the Americas in a historical context because they are still around they did not just go away. It is important to incorporate the current perspectives of American Indians because they are still apart of the american people and they still need to have a voice in what they want. We need the inputs of the Native Americans in decisions that impact the environment because they relay on the environment to meet there basic needs.

It is important to consider current Native American perspectives because NAs are still around and still being affected by the injustices they face. Environmental policies tend to affect reservation lands severely (pipelines).
