be found.
Each hunting ground was known
by its own name, aud was banded
down by inheritance in the male
line from one generation to an
other. It was protected from tres
pass, the punishment for which
sometimes was the supreme pen
alty, in certain cases supposed to
be inflected by conjuring against
the trespasser's life or health. In
dians passing through the hunting
ground of another family usually
sought permission, and if by
necessity game had to be killed,
the pelts were delivered or -other
compensation was made to the
owners of the land. It was cus
tomary, in some cases, when a
particular family had a poor sea
son on its own hunting grounds,
for it to secure the temporary
right to use a part of the hunting
grounds of some neighboring fam
ily until times improved.
Within each family hunting
ground the conservation of the
game was looked to with the
greatest care. The Indian family
knew the approximate number of
deer, bear, moose, caribou, otter
or beaver in its own hunting
ground, and, in the case of some
tribes, regulated with strictness
the number to be killed each year,
so as not to encroach upon the
necessary increase. If the season
for large game had been bad
theof
family would sometimes restrict
itself to a fish diet for months on

end rather than endanger the
breeding stock.
Beaver in particular were most
carefully conserved. The number
of young and old beaver in each
beaver house was known. Before
the era of European influence the
Indians never destroyed all the
members, but took such care of
the beaver as well as of the other
food animals in his hunting ground
as the farmer does of his herds
and flocks. Nowadays, however,
the natives have realized the hope
lessness of conserving their re
sources where they have to com
pete with the avarice of the white
man, so in some regions they un
dertook to "get all they could be
fore the white man cleaned it up."
The Timagami band of the Ojib
ways "even went so far as to di
vide their districts into quarters,
Each year the family hunted in a
different quarter in rotation, leav
ing a tract in the center as a sort
of bank, not "to be hunted over
uuless forced to do so by a short
age in the regular tract." Among
certain Indians, like the Micmacs,
these tracts were held together so
long as there were sons, grandsons
or nephews in the male line to in
herit them, and they were some
times increased by intermarriage
or inheritance.
The Indians of Kentucky, .says
Dr. Clark Wissler, "were in the
habit of burning off forest areas
regularly so as to provide pastur
age for the buffalo, thus enticing
him to remain in the country.
Again, the Indians living in the
regions where wild rice grows
were observed to take certain pre
cautions to protect the rice beds,
even to facilitating their growth.
The conservation of game in theGeneral
family hunting ground was theing
essential fact in the existence of
these Indians, who lived mainly on
game, lor upon it their lives de
pended. Other uses of natural
resources by them were relatively
small, although the hunting In
dians of Peonsylvani used nearly
all of the ediole wild plants, and
cultivated Indian corn, beans and
pumpkins, and even maintained
considerable orchards of fruit.
With his slight knowledge of
the earth, and what it can provide
for the use of man, these Indians,
naked savages to our ancestors,
and mere bushmen. to far too many
present day Americans, had yet
mastered the essential fundamental
a continuous prosperity. They
knew how to use the natural re
sources, without exhausting them.
