"1. In some parts of Central Asia, cotton is the most important economic resource; in other parts oil and natural gas play the same role. Contrast the impact of cotton as opposed to oil dependence, and discuss how dependence on and development of one major resource have cultural and political ramifications in addition to economic implications.
- Can Afghanistan develop an economy based on something other than resource extraction?
- How is economic development affected by settlement in Central Asia being limited to narrow spaces along river courses in the arid and semi-arid areas and is concentrated in river valleys emanating from the highlands in the southeast?

There is an interview with David Treuer, a writer, historian and linguist at the University of Southern California. Listen to the interview. It runs to about 35:45 (so the entire interview is a bit more than 23 minutes long). Answer the following questions in no more than two typed pages.

Provide at least one example.
- What is Teuer’s main message? What does he want non-native peoples to understand about native peoples?
