"The creator is with us, our ancestors are with us, we are never alone my friends, my cousins don't forget who we are or where we come from, we are the star people, we were formed long ago from the earth and water, our mission is to protect the balance between man and nature. If you are my Kumeyaay brothers and sisters or a pure human being you have POWER! We have power! And a responsibility,  be proud, be selfless and listen to our elders, and we will prevail against those who don't understand us." -- Randolph Pinto
