“Take only memories,
Leave only footprints”

~ Native American Proverb
Chief Seattle
(1780-1866)



*Chief Seattle

Born: 1780
Died: June 7, 1866

A Dkhw’Duw’Absh (Duwamish) chief, also known as Sealth, Seathle, Seathl, or See-ahth. A prominent figure among his people, he pursued a path of accommodation to white settlers, forming a personal relationship with David Swinson “Doc” Maynard. Seattle, Washington was named after him. A widely publicized speech arguing in favor of ecological responsibility and respect of native Americans’ land rights has been attributed to him; however there is controversy about what, if anything, he actually said.
