Opt for (C): Crisp and straight to the point

(A): Odd sentence structure
(B): Think that this is the next best option after (C).
(D): What / who does "having" refers to? Newcomers or Native Americans? Ambiguity
(E): Same as (D) above

Why not E ?

knowing intimately the ecology of the land - is another modifier modifying "Native Americans" - Shouldn't the two modifiers be grouped together ?

C.

E is not because "knowing ..." is ambiguous. it could modify either the new comers or the Native Americans.

I guess..focus has to be "Native Americans", and not "knowing".

In E, the focus is on "knowing"
