The Ecological Indian in Pop Culture

To me, this cartoon sums up Krech's purpose perfectly. Western culture was willing to accept outlandish ideas about nature from "Native Americans", or people who resembled Native Americans, because of the stereotype we have developed. Krech simply wanted to instill question into the readers mind on whether or not all Native Americans are environmental gurus. I wonder if Krechs book had any influence on the making of this cartoon.
