What was your day job? So I did that [MAVIN] work for a number of years, and I was establishing myself as a person working on issues of mixed race nationally. What I do is, I take that academic-oriented discussion and bring it into an accessible message. I was really focused on being story-based. I really start with the message I want to convey. For me, the box was a reflection of the Chinese diaspora in the United States. My experience as an indigenous person and my experience being the grandchild of an immigrant—it's a distinctly American experience.
That story connecting Seattle and China is embedded in that box. How big is it? It's 8 by 10 inches. Yes, the lid opens. The way the box is made by bending the wood.
That box will never fit another lid. The top and bottom of the box are red cedar, and the body of the box is yellow cedar. My uncle made that in his workshop just across the border in Canada. I'm embarrassed to say I'm going to have to look up whether Nooksack is Salish because I can't remember.
We are just outside of Bellingham. In writing about art, I've often come across the problem that Coast Salish art is overshadowed by the Northern formline style. There have been countless exhibitions of formline art at museums and galleries, but the first time a museum organized a Salish show was just a few years agodespite that Salish territory spans along the coast from Oregon all the way up into Canada, where the Northern coastal territories begin.
There are three basic shapes in Salish art, right? There's the crescent, the oval, and the trigon. Basically the box is mostly influenced by Northern-style art [formline]. My art typically has influences from Coast Salish and Northern-style art.
The curly hair of the Fu dogs, that's made of trigons and ovals, and that's Salish. Why do you mix Salish and Northern styles? I really like to challenge ideas of what authentic Native art is. The fine art and the museum scene tend to look at Native art as being something that needs to be a reflection of what Native people were doing at first contact.

Arrowsmith said it read like prose from the Greek poet Pindar. With interest aroused, he found the original source. After reading it, he decided to try improving Smith's version of the speech, by removing Victorian influences. Arrowsmith attempted to get a sense of how Chief Seattle might have spoken, and to establish some "likely perimeters of the language.
The words are in fact taken from Arrowsmith's version of the speech, but with further modifications such as the image of shooting buffalo from trains, and the line "The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. But Perry was not credited with this because, according to Perry, the producer thought the movie would seem more authentic if the text was attributed directly to Chief Seattle himself and not to a screenwriter.
Perry himself explained what happened: I first heard a version of the text read by William Arrowsmith at the first Environmental Day celebration in I was there and heard him. He was a close friend.
Arrowsmith's version hinted at how difficult it was for Seattle to understand the white man's attitude toward land, water, air, and animals. For the soundtrack for a documentary I had already proposed about the environment, I decided to write a new version, elaborating on and heightening what was hinted at in Arrowsmith's text While it would be easy to hide behind the producer's decision, without my permission, to delete my "Written by" credit when the film was finished and aired on television, the real problem is that I should not have used the name of an actual human being, Chief Seattle.
That I could put words into the mouth of someone I did not know, particularly a Native American, is pure hubris if not racist. While there has been some progress in our knowledge of Native Americans, we really know very little.

What we think we know is mediated by films, chance encounters, words, images and other stereotypes. They serve our worldview but they are not true. I edited the speech to fit our needs [Baptists] more closely. There was no apple pie and motherhood and so I added the references to God and I am a savage to make the Radio and Television Commission happy I had edited scripts that did not have the Baptists' line dozens of times.
This needed to be done so they could justify spending thousands of dollars on a film I eventually quit my job as a producer because I got tired of shoehorning those interests into scripts. Clark as "an unhistorical artifact of someone's fertile literary imagination".
The first environmental version was published in the November 11, issue of Environmental Action magazine.
By this time it was no longer billed as a speech, but as a letter from Chief Seattle to President Pierce. Jones himself has since said that he "first saw the letter in September in a now out of business Native American tabloid newspaper.
For the letter to have made it to the desk of the President it would have passed through at least six departments: Everard was also integral in getting 12th Avenue Arts off the ground, sitting on the board for several years. Amid his development projects and community engagement, Everard still maintains a limited number of arts and development-focused clients at his law firm Groff Murphy.
He said he would love to see more green space and pedestrian-only areas around the neighborhood. Lined with successful restaurants, bars and shops, of course.
