Meanwhile the aboriginal peoples try to push the myth that they are" safe custodians" of wildlife.

That is simply bullshit. They have had zero regards for anything other than their own greed.

And yet, somehow, we still allow illegal hunting and fishing by people, because it is "their heritage".

Yes, they are usually hard work, often in harsh environments.
Plumbers, Electricians, Glaziers, Carpenters, drywallers, floor installers, roofers, etc..
Get a trade, you will always be able to get a job that pays at least reasonably well.
If you do not mind moving, then it should pay quite well.

A rock store eventually closed down; they were taking too much for granite.
