"I take sustenance from the younger generation.

They will soon assume guardianship of our culture, including our orature and literature.

If the current of our Native creativity continues to flow, our people have nothing to fear.

We will continue to compose and chant and write for many generations to come."

- Dr. Haunani-Kay Trask
