You're right, it's C.

I had chosen E, prefering "knowing intimately" to "intimate knowledge" which sounded so bad to me...

^ C ^

>> "in the rescuing of" or "in the rescue of" is not a true usage so A, B and D are out.

>> between C and E, C is clear and it is better we start the choice with "Native Americans"
