What kinds of property rights apply to Algonquian family hunting territories, and how did they come to be? The dominant view in recent decades has been that family hunting territories, like other forms of private landownership, were not found among Algonquians (a group of North American Indian tribes) before contact with Europeans but are the result of changes in Algonquian society brought about by the European-Algonquian fur trade, in combination with other factors such as ecological changes and consequent shifts in wildlife harvesting patterns. Another view claims that Algonquian family hunting territories predate contact with Europeans and are forms of private landownership by individuals and families. More recent fieldwork, however, has shown that individual and family rights to hunting territories form part of a larger land-use system of multifamilial hunting groups, that rights to hunting territories at this larger community level take precedence over those at the individual or family level, and that this system reflects a concept of spiritual and social reciprocity that conflicts with European concepts of private property. In short, there are now strong reasons to think that it was erroneous to claim that Algonquian family hunting territories ever were, or were becoming, a kind of private property system.
1. It can be inferred from the passage that proponents of the view mentioned in the first highlighted text believe which of the following about the origin of Algonquian family hunting territories?

(A) They evolved from multifamilial hunting territories.
(B) They are an outgrowth of reciprocal land-use practices.
(C) They are based on certain spiritual beliefs.
(D) They developed as a result of contact with Europeans.
(E) They developed as a result of trade with non-Algonquian Indian tribes.



2. The primary purpose of the passage is to

(A) provide an explanation for an unexpected phenomenon
(B) suggest that a particular question has yet to be answered
(C) present a new perspective on an issue
(D) defend a traditional view from attack
(E) reconcile opposing sides of an argument



3. According to the passage, recent fieldwork has revealed which of the following about rights to hunting territories in Algonquian societies?

(A) Rights at the individual level take precedence over those at the family level.
(B) Rights at the multifamilial level take precedence over those at the family level.
(C) These rights developed as a result of changes in Algonquian society brought about by contact with Europeans.
(D) These rights developed in response to European challenges to Algonquian private land ownership.
(E) These rights developed in response to recent ecological changes that have negatively affected the availability of game.

2.
(C) present a new perspective on an issue.

My answer are DAB. though i was not confident with the second answer. C is also not clear because the author does not present a new perspective.
Please could someone give more details.

Good short passage!

3/3 correct, but 8 min total :cry: . Have to work on initial step: took me 5 min to read and answer first question. good think I am improving by reading the structure of the passage+ taking short notes + skimming not relevant info. Not reading the full passage anymore.
