"You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers.
So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin.
Teach your children that we have taught our children that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls
the earth befalls the sons of earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves.
This we know, the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. This we know. All
things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected."
Attr. to Chief Seattle (ca. 1854), written 1979 by Ted Perry
