Chief Seattle (or more accurately, if you have respect for the man, Sealth) never said it. It was written by a screenwriter in the '70s in a factually inaccurate documentary that was written for the purpose of pushing an agenda, not teaching. If someone at Pike place tries to sell you this speech for $20, just point and laugh.

Chief Seattle of Sealth. Love this speech. First read it while in my english class and I was completely blown away by it. The message behind it is beautiful. I love the native indian beliefs about nature and life.

This is one of my favorite quotes from Chief Seattle.♥

A MASTERS WORDS OF WISDOM

All things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports. Chief Seattle, really Chief Sealth

This we know.  The Earth does not belong to us;  we belong to the Earth.  All things are connected  like the blood that unites one family.  Whatever befalls the Earth,  befalls the children of the Earth.  We do not weave the web of life;  we are only a strand of it.  Whatever we do to the web,  we do to ourselves.  ~Chief Seattle (Ts’ial-la-kum)  Suquamish and Duwamish tribes.    Do go to the original post and read the other quotes there too.

Chief Seattle, chief of the Suquamish: "Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.

Seems to me the US lost its wisdom when it stopped listening to some of the wisest to walk this earth. They replaced them with total crap for leaders - like replacing NZ made goods with Chinese made shit - Deirdre

Chief Seattle speech is more poetic. To me her speech is more about giving examples of how they are different people.
