In what respects does Chief Seattle wish their father in Washington to regard the native Americans his own children, as expressed in Chief Seattle’s Speech, 1854?
Chief Seattle wants the father in Washington to regard the natives his own children by imposing the same laws that regulate the White Americans. He objects that the White administrators show partiality by treating the tribals rather harshly, by forcing their way into the native lands and by not respecting the basic rights of the native Americans.
He wants the white chief to protect the children, woman and old men of the tribal people form their ancient enemies. He appeals to the white people to be just and kind to his tribal people then in reality he would be their father and they would be his children.
