One Land For All

"We do not own the freshness of the air or the sparkle of the water. How can you buy them from us?" -Sealth

 

This quote shows once more how the idea of one land for all was emphasized. Sealth says that they didn't own the freshness of the air or the sparkle of the water, both of which helped composed their land. If it was never owned in the first place, then it was never something to be sold in the Native American eye. Land in their was never something to be bought and sold, but something just to live upon.

This was a cartoon showing a man (as a European Settler) telling a Native American family, "It's time to reclaim America from illegal immigrants!" The one Native American on the right replies, "I'll help you pack". This shows how the N.A felt about the settlers. The settlers called Native Americans "immigrants" but they were the ones that migrated to America.
