  7. 8. How did Native Americans and whites differ in their views on land use? *

    Native Americans saw themselves as part of nature and considered it sacred, while whites saw it as a natural resource used to produce wealth.

    Whites believed the land was sacred and fundamental to their religious beliefs.
