The praise of Native American peoples as living in harmony with nature is ill placed, unless you consider constant warfare and attempts at genocide natural, since this was the situation in the Americas prior to the plagues that devastated American peoples.
Those plagues left but ~3% of the Native population alive by the time conquests really got rolling, a century later, and without that decimation it is highly doubtful armor and firearms would have surmounted the raw numbers of troops Native cultures could have fielded - if they could have surmounted their own racism against each other to do so.
I was raised among Natives in Alaska, and to this day the Tlingits brag about enslaving the Aleuts, and say they'd do it again (at least in private conversation). They weren't a big, happy family of brothers, but entirely human cultures desperately competing with their neighbors, with all the baggage that implies. If you think they didn't have firearms because of environmental concerns, then why do Athabascans shoot walrus with firearms today?
They just never got round to them, for whatever reason, not because of some reverence for nature, and the genocide of Native Americans is highly instructive to us today, because they were genocided because they did not adopt the advanced tech of the day. None of the civilized tribes ever smelted iron, made rifles, or anything like that.
Today means of production are able to be distributed to individuals, and this is why the corona psyop is being undertaken now, because in ten years distribution of means of production will so dramatically reduce flows of capital to overlords that they will not be able to preserve their power.
Seize the means of seizing the day, today.
