La ecología y la espiritualidad caracterizan la visión de la naturaleza de los pueblos indígenas. En enero de 1854 el jefe indígena Si'ahl (más conocido como Seattle) pronunció un elocuente discurso explicando porqué la tierra no se puede vender. Desde el siglo XIX se han hecho muchos intentos de recrear las palabras perdidas de Si'ahl. Aquí presentamos, a partir de lo que hoy sabemos, la versión más fiable del discurso en edición bilingüe e ilustrada, con un comentario sobre sus temas clave y su calidad oratoria.  Ecology and spirituality characterize the nature view of indigenous peoples. In January 1854 the indigenous chief Si'ahl (better known as Seattle) made an eloquent speech explaining why the land cannot be sold. Since the 19th century, many attempts have been made to recreate the lost words of Si'ahl. Here we present, from what we know today, the most reliable version of the speech in a bilingual and illustrated edition, with a commentary on key themes and quality of speech.
