I was impressed by this speech, by Chief Seattle, [Chief Seattle (an Anglicization of Si'ahl), (Lushootseed pronunciation: [ˈsiʔaːɬ], originally [ˈsiʔaːtɬʼ];[1] c. 1780 - June 7, 1866) was a Dkhw’Duw’Absh (Duwamish) chief,[2] also known as Sealth, Seathle, Seathl, or See-ahth. A prominent figure among his people, he pursued a path of accommodation to white settlers, forming a personal relationship with David Swinson "Doc" Maynard. The city of Seattle, in the U.S. state of Washington, was named after him. A widely publicized speech arguing in favor of ecological responsibility and respect of native Americans' land rights has been attributed to him.].
 My daughter Vandita Kapoor, sent the link, for me to approve, and if I liked it enough for my son to speak in one of his speech/elocution competitions held in his school.
Am attaching the link :
