THE VALUE OF THE WILDERNESS and “African Safaris“
“Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth”
(An adaption of Chief Seathl’s letter written to the President of the United States, 1854 – a passionate plea by a Squamish Indian chief for the preservation of wilderness.)
We know that the city man does not understand our ways. One portion of the land is the same to him as the next, for he is a stranger who comes in the night and takes from the land whatever he needs. The earth is not his brother, but his enemy, and when he has conquered it, he moves on. He leaves his father’s grave behind and does not care.
Every part of this earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing and humming insect is holy to the memory and experience of my people.
One thing we know which the city man may one day discover. Our God is the same God. You may think that you own the land. But you cannot. He is the God of man. And His compassion is equal for all men. The earth is precious to Him. And to harm the earth is to heap contempt on its creator.
The city dwellers, too, shall pass – perhaps sooner than the others. Continue to contaminate your bed, and you will one night suffocate in your own waste. When the buffaloes are all slaughtered, the wild horses tamed, the secret corners of the forest heavy with the scent of many men and the view of the ripe hills blotted by talking wives, where is the thicket? Gone. Where is the eagle? Gone. And what is it to say goodbye to the swift and the hunt? It is the end of living and the beginning of survival.
We might understand if we knew what it was that the city man dreams, what hopes he describes to his children on long winter nights, what visions he burns into their minds, so that they will wish for tomorrow. But we are children of the wilds. The city mans dreams are hidden from us. And because they are hidden, we will go our own way. There perhaps we may live out our days as we wish.
There is no quiet in the cities of mankind. No place to hear the leaves of spring or the rustle of insect’s wings. But perhaps because I am simple and do not understand, the clatter only seems to insult the ears. And what is there to life if a man cannot hear the lovely cry of a whippoorwill or the argument of the frogs around the pond at night? A man nurtured in the soul of the wilderness prefers the soft sound of the wind darting over the face of the pond, and the smell of the wind itself cleansed by a midday rain, scented with the pinion pine. The air is precious to our kind. For all things share the same breath – the beasts, the trees, the man. The city man does not seem to notice the air he breathes. Like a man dying many days, he is numb to the stench.
The city man must treat the beasts of this land as his brothers. I am simple and I do not understand any other way. I have seen a thousand rotting buffaloes on the prairies, left by thoughtless men who shot them from a passing train. I am simple and I do not understand how the smoking iron horse can be more important than the buffalo that we kill only to stay alive. What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from the great loneliness of spirit for whatever happens to the beast, also happens to the man. All beings are connected.
Chief Seathl. 1855.
