Humanities Washington Presents: “Who Was Chief Seattle?”

Chief Seattle was a warrior, an orator, a benefactor, and a visionary who helped found the city that bears his name, Seattle, the largest city in the world named after a Native American. He wrote nothing down during his life, yet his words-both real and imagined-are known throughout the world. The result is a man made up of both historical and fictional aspects, from which conflicting messages can be gleaned.

David M. Buerge, a biographer and a historian to the Duwamish Tribe, explores this complex figure to uncover how one man’s story still shapes the identity of the city.
