(ONLY IN SPANISH)
Mr. President, I Am Chief
A NEW MESSAGE TO MANKIND FROM THE FAMOUS NATIVE AMERICAN
Seattle, leader of the Suquamish and Duwamish tribes of northwestern of United States said verbatim in 1854: "The dead
are not powerless".
This was demonstrated in the 1970's, when an alleged letter attributed to Chief Seattle (addressed, it was said, to President Franklin Pierce), toured the world and became the most important environmental manifesto in our times, with phrases that have become part of the collective unconscious of humanity,
"Man did not weave the web of life: he is
merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself".
Now, in this new millennium, and firmly believing in the words of Seattle that the dead are not powerless, Grian has linked this belief to the theories of the collective unconscious of Carl Gustav Jung to give us a new message from this known Native American Chief.
The message of Seattle, in letter form, addressed to the U.S. President, was sent to the White House during the last months in office of President George W. Bush, who never replied.
