Long Description:
"Why should I murmur at the fate of my people? Tribes are made up of individuals and are no better than they. Men come and go like the waves of the sea..."

--- Excerpt from the speech of Chief Seattle to Governor Stevens, 1884

This mosaic is located at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, WA. This mosaic is small, looking to be about 6-7 feet. The plaque next to it has information about the mosaic and a quotation from Chief Seattle's famous speech. The coordinates are not very accurate. The mural is located under a roof so I couldn't get very good satellite reception. The coordinates are just about 20 feet from the mural. If you have trouble finding it look to the right of the bathrooms from where you are standing and you will see it. When you visit please include a photo to prove that you were there. Happy Waymarking!
