Over the years, Chief Seattle's famous speech has been embellished, popularized, and carved into many a monument, but its origins have remained inadequately explained. Understood as a symbolic encounter between indigenous America, represented by Chief Seattle, and industrialized or imperialist America, represented by Isaac I. Stevens, the first governor of Washington Territory, it was first published in a Seattle newspaper in 1887 by a pioneer who claimed he had heard Seattle (or Sealth) deliver it in the 1850s. No other record of the speech has been found, and Isaac Stevens's writings do not mention it. Yet it has long been taken seriously as evidence of a voice crying out of the wilderness of the American past. Answering Chief Seattle presents the full and accurate text of the 1887 version and traces the distortions of later versions in order to explain the many layers of its mystery. This book also asks how the speech could be heard and answered, by reviewing its many contexts. Mid-century ideas about land, newcomers, ancestors, and future generations informed the ways Stevens and his contemporaries understood Chief Seattle and recreated him as a legenday figure
How can one sell the air? : Chief Seattle's vision by Seattle( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We know that Native Americans have a long history of understanding the relationship between humans and the earth. Chief Seattle's eloquent plea to respect "the Sacred Web of Life" has become an inspiration to many. But what did Chief Seattle really say? Our research led us to the version the Suquamish elders from Seattle's tribe include in their oral tradition, published in this new edition along with two popular twentieth century adaptations. A section of historical background explains the evolution of the speech and clears up the recent controversy surrounding its authenticity"--Back cover
