I was just over excitedly rambling to starwall about how amazing precolumbian agriculture was with companion planting, biodiversity of crops to stop disease wiping them out, terraced farming in the Andes with different species bred to grow at different altitudes. white people fucking destroyed so many amazing methods of agriculture with huge monocultues and livestock that ravage an ecosystem in that they eat EVERYTHING and destroy it. Australia was very much the same but even more cool in how unique their agriculture was before white people literally made it into the desert it is now in just 200 years
colonialism wiped native knowledge from existence that could have been key in the development of better production practices because they believed they were just naturally better and never thought to consider non white people could do something so complex due to the ideology of white supremacist colonialism. so sure, white boy keep going on about how much white people have given to history
