Ashitaka peoples can be a good representation of how people and nature can coexist peacefully together the evidence that shows that is how the people show respect to the boar as he die even though he attacked their village, another good representation would be how Ashitaka and his pet elk Yakul shares a strong bond with each other because during the movie it shows how dedicated Yakul is to Ashitaka by staying beside him throughout the days as he was unconscious.
