Chief Seattle's Reply


The newest version bears little resemblance to the old one. It is the work of Ted Perry, a scriptwriter for a 1972 film about ecology called Home. This version casts Chief Seattle as an early ecological visionary, speaking of the insights of his people into the workings of nature. It led to his becoming a role model of the environmental movement (rightfully or not). A shortened rendering of the third version is also circulating.
