In 1854, a well-respected indigenous leader, chief Si’ahl, renowned for his eloquence, made a speech in front of a representative of the United States government, explaining that land cannot be sold. Since the 19th century, there have been many attemps to reconstruct the lost words of Si’ahl (often written ‘Seattle’). Carefully avoiding some of the problems of previous editions, this booklet explains what we actually know about the man, the speech and its main versions, highlighting the relevance of its ecological and spiritual approach for today’s predicament.
