The Earth Is Sacred - Seattle (c. 1784–1866), Native American Chief

This quote was added by paulkie
How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of the earth is sacred to my people.
