Chief Seattle, in his youth a great war chief, became an advocate for peace and friendship with the white settlers of Puget Sound, Washington. He is renowned today for an eloquent speech given in 1854 during treaty negotiations with the U.S. government in which he expressed a hope for peaceful coexistence and advocated respect for the environment.
