"This we know: The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth." Voice by Gilberto V. and music "Heya Heya" by Alborada. Narration script excerpt from Version 4 (Perry) Chief Seattle Speech; Washington State Library http://www.synaptic.bc.ca/ejournal/ws....

A story is told that in 1854, the "Great White Chief" in Washington made an offer for a large area of Indian land and promised a 'reservation' for the Indian people. In response, Chief Seattle writes a letter to President Franklin Pierce. The prophetic message has been described as "the most beautiful and profound statement on the environment ever made."
