Chief Seattle (au); Susan Jeffers (il). How can you buy the sky? How can you own the rain & the wind? So began the moving words attributed to a great American Indian chief over 100 years ago. They are words that eloquently & poetically captured the central belief of Native Americans: that this earth & every creature on it is sacred. Jeffers paintings illuminate the words & world vision possessed by Native Americans. Chief Seattle was present at treaty negotiations that took place with the dominant white settlers in the 1850s. At one of these negotiations he delivered a speech in his native tongue, a speech which has since served as the basis of ecological movements around the world. Abby Award, ABA.
