What's that have to do with anything?

From a story on the Japanese asteroid probe returning to earth:
Local Aboriginal tribespeople were to assist in the recovery of the canister to ensure no damage is done to sites sacred to their ancient culture, which stretches back more than 40,000 years.
I think that if your people have been around for that long and the best you can do is to live off of government money from people who have only lived there a couple hundred years then your ancestors largely wasted their time. To paraphrase a line from Sea Lab: 40,000 years of stupid.
