The Chief Seattle speech might not be accurately transcribed (:)) but it was based on the author's recollection of the speech, Seattle was noted as a great orator, and it is still a beutiful sentiment even if it was filtered through the stylistic pen of a romantic era writer.

Just sayin. It's not a myth that he gave such a speech, just that it wasn't exactly transcribed so much as interpreted some years later.

And it is beautiful.

Sorry, you're engaging in wishful thinking. I agree those are beautiful sentiments, and it would be even nicer if Chief Seattle had said them. But those were not his words. Here's a good analysis.

Next thing, you'll be telling me there's no God.
