How is Thoreau viewed inside Native communities? How is he taught? Is he considered beneficial for his observations of nature or ignorant of the larger picture? Or not considered as a relevant figure at all?

While Abbe is for the Native community, I am curious in the museum's approach to educating the non Native community. Is this a priority? Or perhaps for now the priority is to focus on the Native communities.
Kristen, thank you for bringing in the pre-Thoreau history! There is a huge lack of education about this!

I think Thoreau would approve of this conversation and would be the first to admit his errors if he heard these presentations. :)
Thank you to all the presenters and attendees for the honesty!
