"He called to the ancient ones for help, but they did not hear him.
So I called to them, and they heard me."
Castle-Hughes), an 11-year-old girl in a patriarchal New Zealand tribe, believes
she is destined to be the new chief. But her grandfather Koro (Rawiri Paratene)
is bound by tradition to pick a male leader. Pai sets out to prove herself
worthy of the post.
"Bondage exists in many forms. A person can be tied up and confined in physical reality, or he can be a slave within his mind and emotions. If our present society is to survive through the next 30 years, we are each going to have to turn inward and ask our traumatized child to awaken - and to recall for us all the knowledge that was cut off in those early years. If we cannot do that, then we must allow our outer children to do it for us. Those born after us carry the seeds of what we once lost from our Collective Consciousness. We blocked ourselves once. We dare not do it again.
The Star Children are waiting for our cue. They know how to get inside that doorway to the Promised Land, but they are hesitant to leave us behind. They are fairly sure about what they know, but they would rather go in with us than leave us here in the desert of our traditions and our "business as usual." Our goal must be to let that "secret knowledge" begin to flow free again. The fruit of the tree is sweet, and there is no longer a death sentence if we taste it. Are we ready to believe that?"
