There is a significant fundamental difference between the native American beliefs and that of the Whites. While the White people are more mechanical and artificial in their dealings with nature and their ancestors, the natives regard the same with high esteem.

Every part of this soil is sacred in the estimation of my people.

Moreover, as Seattle says, after their deaths the White people never return to the places they lived on, but disappear beyond stars. On the other hand, the native Americans love their places, the hills, the rivers and the people they lived with. So they return and wander in the place they lived on the earth. To them death is just a change of worlds.
