Indigenous folks protect environment?

In the last week or so I've seen several postings which seem to take as a
foregone conclusion that indigenous people know how to take care of their
environment. To me this notion sounds like Rousseauean, hogwash. If
indigenous peoples environments are less messed-up than our own, then I suggest
it's because there are just less of them.

Since when has swiddening been an environmentally sensitive approach?

Is anyone interested in talking about this?
