“We step into th' future wi' less connection t' ancestral guidance than any human generation before us. Although we have invented amazin' technologies fer savin' data, we be at risk o' forgettin' our personal, family and cultural stories. We broadcast our voices o'er vast distances, but talk less t' our neighbours. Hauntin' these changes be th' spectres o' continuin' violence, planetary degradation and, above all, th' danger that we’ll come t' believe th' implacable message o' th' powerful: that resistance be futile. Th' barnacle-covered stories teach us that resistance be no nay ne'er futile.”
