Reading Level: 4.2[return]Genre: Nonfiction - Informational[return][return]Summary: A message for Chief Seattle ad he describes the Native American’s love for the Earth and the want and need to preserve it. The book captures the essence of their respect and reverence for the beauty of the land and its inhabitants. The message is that we belong to the Earth, that it does not belong to us. (Although the book attributes this idea of Chief Seattle, that is in question.) [return][return]Evaluation: This is a beautiful message that clearly shows the students how much the Native Americans appreciated the land and nature. This message by Chief Seattle is beautifully written and is very descriptive when talking about the beautiful Earth that the Indians lived on. This book shows the reader that the Indians appreciated all the beauty of the Earth and lived as one with the land, rather than trying to destroy it. The illustrations are stunning and cover the entire page. They are done in fine-line pen with ink and dyes and capture the beauty of America. Jeffers’ beautiful illustrations are reason enough to share this book with students. It makes the connection between people and the Earth and the responsibility we al share to take care of our environment and its creatures.

"[In this book] a Suquamish Indian chief describes his people's respect and love for the earth, and concern for its destruction." Source: Summary from the title page. "Chief Seattle lived from approximately 1790 to 1866, in the Pacific Northwest region of what is now the United States. He was a chief of the Suquamish and Duwamish Indians and was present at treaty negotiations that took place with the dominant white settlers in the 1850s. It was at one of those negotiations that Chief Seattle delivered a speech in his native tongue, a speech which has since--in a variety of forms--served as the basis of ecological movements around the world and from which 'Brother Eagle, Sister Sky' is drawn." Source: Book's dust jacket. " Susan Jeffers's paintings for [this book] combine the beauty of nature with the wisdom of Native American philosophy. 'My aim,' says Ms. Jeffers, 'was to portray people and artifacts from a wide array of nations because the philosophy expressed in the text is one shared by most Native Americans. . ."

There's no reliable transcript of what Si'ahl said to his gathered people in March 1854. He was a Native American though, so we should just assume it was all about bears and deers, and leaping spirits, and the importance of harnessing renewable energy for a sustainable future. He didn't ride a horse, as he wasn't a plains Indian, but what kind of boring illustration would that make? I'd like to think that Chief Seattle invented the environmental movement with a searing vision-warning about our industrialised future and that he didn't just have a moan about being shuffled off to a reservation. Reading this, I can believe that he did. ( )

Beautiful and lyrical. Although basically a picture book, just had to have this wonderful book.. ( )

This is an attractive book with an appealing message. It is purportedly based on an 1855 speech, in which Chief Seattle regrets that whites do not share the American Indian caretaker approach to Nature. The text owes more to a 1970s filmscript, however, written to reflect modern-day ecological concerns… [and] it is impossible to judge how closely the text presented here reflects the original. The illustrations are attractive, but unfortunately, reflect Plains material culture, not Squamish.
 
Examining Multicultural Picture Books for the Early Childhood Classroom: Possibilities and Pitfalls
[excerpt]

Popular but Problematic Books: The First Pitfall

The responses of Native critics to these three books suggest that neither critical acclaim nor representations of cultures other than European American can guarantee that a book is good multicultural literature. Regardless of how engaging the stories are, or how important their themes, even their subtle inaccuracies may contribute to cultural misunderstanding and to potential discomfort for children whose cultures are inaccurately portrayed. Both the mirror and the window are thus distorted.

In a time so long ago that nearly all traces of it are lost in the prairie dust, an ancient people were a part of the land that we love and call America.
