A dam saves up water to be used as needed. That's why the hydroelectric plants are on dams instead of on the river itself like historical water wheels.

I don't need sources to point out super obvious things. Water is wet. The sky is up. Dams accumulate water.

It wasn't some high moral choice. It was being a stone/bronze age culture.

And the Native Americans wiped out several large species that we know of shortly after their arrival to the Americas. Hunted to extinction due to being big/slow and therefore easy food.

When did that ever exist on a large scale?

It's always feels like that's part of the "noble savage" mythos which didn't actually ever happen.

Poets/writers talking about it? Sure. But not at large.
