CHIEF SEATTLE REVIVAL
“More than 28,000 metric tons of extremely lethal spent nuclear fuel are currently simmering in steel-lined concrete pools at commercial storage sites spread across 32 states. Rolling Stone magazine investigates plans to dump the nuclear waste on an Apache Indian reservation in New Mexico. The controversy has split Apaches among those who want tribal lands preserved and those who see a tremendous economic opportunity in turning their reservation into a nuclear waste dump. (June 13, 1996)”
After reading the above article Geronimo vs. Cochise, the prophetic mythic words of the late great Chief Seattle Speech of 1854 came back to me and in song, Chief Seattle Revival. And with this song comes a deep felt apology to the 500 Nations and all the Native American Indian People for all the harm America and my ancestors have done and continue to do: for taking your land, your lives, your way of life, and all the suffering that has befallen you. I honor the great wisdom and culture of the Native American Indian People. We need you. We have always needed you. We need you now.
