As Chief Seattle says it, the Red Indians are deeply attached to their lands. They never forget ‘this beautiful world that gave them being’ even after their death. They continue to love the places where they worked or roamed about — ‘its verdant valleys, its murmuring rivers, its magnificent mountains, sequestered vales and verdant lined lakes and bays’, and often return to visit, guide, console or comfort their lonely hearted living children or grandchildren with their ‘tender fond affection.’

As already stated by the chief, the people of his tribe had affection as well as they knew the value of the world that gave them being, they had respect for their ancestors, so they visited their graves.

After the death of the people, they roamed around the places they loved. And also they did console and comfort the grandchildren.
