The Same Family by Chief Seattle

The Same Family by Chief Seattle

We know the sap that courses
through the trees as we know
the blood that courses
through our veins

We are part of the
earth and it is part of us

The perfumed
flowers are our sisters

The bear, the deer,
the great eagle,
these are our brothers

The rocky crests, the dew in
the meadow, the body heat of
the pony, and the human all
belong to the same family
