    Amongst the theme of friendship, control and trust one of the most important themes of Chief Seattle Speech is the people’s relationship with their land. The Native Americans value their ancestors and the land, where as the white men tries to expand their territory by capturing the lands of the natives. The speech is a response to the Big Chief’s proposal for the natives to give up their land. For the natives, however, the land is not just a piece of earth but it’s a symbol of their ancestors and culture and traditions.
