Living Off Of Louisiana Land Then and Now Many things have changed in the way in the way people live, the Indians used to trust fully off the land, providing for their daily needs. These days, people depend on technology and other people to supply the food, drinks, and the necessities they need. Living off the land, to “live on whatever food one can obtain by hunting, gathering, or subsistence farming.” (Oxford Dictionary, screen 1), has a different meaning to modern day society than it did back in the days where people made a living and survived by it.
Klare argues that discovery of a natural resource, for instance, oil, result to producers seeking and exploiting the most desirable, best quality and those closest to markets. Over time, these resources become scarce, of poorer quality, harder to extract and extend into the further away area from the market hence need for discovery of other means of obtaining the resource. These means may cause several problems, which may include;
Oil companies failed to recognize that there is already a community living at the Standing Rock reservation, who are dependent on its water and land to survive. They were only interested in the future outcomes the pipeline will bring to the local community. Oluo felt reporting about the Standing Rock protesting to Americans will encourage support whenever in America and to donate whatever they can to help Native Americans to fight for their home. The author is speaking to America as a whole to understand the recent protests and its effects on minorities. She believes all citizens of America should be aware of such events occurring in their community and to stand in solidarity to help the unheard to seek justice and have freedom. But, Oluo also emphasized the struggles minorities has endured in America by referring back to known history such as mentioning the Civil Rights Movement and the first colonization in Americans by Europeans. In this case, the real message was to enlighten America to rethink their attitudes toward minorities, to look at such things as wrong and to stand in solidarity for those voices are silent. However, it seems as if she is speaking to the dominant white society and proving to them that Native Americans will fight for their rights

The first relation should be between the natives and their land in connection with the potential petroleum production and the world. This issue is global in scope as 95% of Canada and 12% of the world's oil is in Alberta. A secondary relation is not only in terms of domestic resources, but the global effects of extraction, as NASA supports that the domestic and international effects would be catastrophic with twice the amount of CO2 being emitted from this Canadian extraction than all of the oil used in history (McCreary & Milligan, 116.) As stated initially, the merit of this article focuses on the actions taken by First Nations and their supporters. Enbridge's proposed pipeline project has initiated research in Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge to supposedly help guide them through a means of working with protesting groups. The findings of this research ultimately leaned towards ways of rerouting maps due to regulatory requirements. Enbridge is an example of a corporation that does not recognize the authority of First Nations groups. A neo-colonial relationship is produced and practiced in territory and development (McCreary & Milligan, 117.) There is very little mention on the media about the improvements of First Nations rights. Though there have been triumphs in aboriginal rights, indigenous development according to McCreary are deeply political/material advancements that not only coincide with the events, but are dependent on returns of resource extraction and consumption (McCreary & Milligan,
