Uaschitschun is song written singer and guitarist Rolf Kasparek which tells about the pollution of nature through an American Indian's perspective. "Uaschitschun" is a word that the Indians used for white males, the nearest translation is "ghost." This was probably just because of the pale appearance of the conquerors and not for their deeds, since ghosts weren't considered evil by Indians. The ending words were originally spoken by Chief Seattle in a famous speech he made to the whites when they came to buy the lands of Seattle.
