Description

Two porcelain-enamel-on-steel panels created by Native American artist Edgar Heap of Birds feature quotations in both English and Lushootseed (Chief Seattle's native language).

The passages convey in a contemporary medium the sentiments of the Chief's famous speech given during the treaty negotiations of 1854, a public address that speaks to the relationship of his people to the earth.

One panel reads: "Far away brothers and sisters, we still remember you" while the other one reads: "Chief Seattle, now the streets are our home."
