“We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, and winding streams with tangled growth, as “wild”. Only to the white man was nature a “wilderness” and only to him was the land “infested” with “wild” animals and “savage” people. To us it was tame. Not until the hairy man from the east came … was it “wild” for us”. – Chief Luther Standing Bear of the Oglala Sioux, 19th Century (emphasis mine).
