I seem to recall L. Binford making the distinction (among
"hunter-gatherer" types) between "foragers" and "collectors," with the
!Kung a good example of the former, and the NW coast groups like the
Tlingit, Haida, etc an example of the latter (Binford may not have used
those specific examples, but you see the point...). Perhaps this
distinction might be useful in this discussion?
