The Ten Commandments of the Native American Indians (Video)


Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
– Chief Seattle, 1854

    Can anyone tell me who holds the copyright to these 10 Commandments? I am anxious to include it in a book I am writing for children and want to know who I should contact. Pieta

    This should be posted in every school classroom and every federal building and these concepts should also be taught as part of our school curriculum. What a different world it would/will be if this is the way we live!
