Tell Me Stories (Paraphrasing LeGuin): Solomon Ratt (th-dialect)

As a faithful reader of Ursula K LeGuin, and a faithful reteller of important truths, two thoughts from LeGuin led to the reflection in Cree that Solomon Ratt shares with us here:

LeGuin:

“You owe us the story”; “The untold story mothers the lie.”

Solomon Ratt:

“âcimostawin: kipihtowîwin ka-nîhtâwikihtâw kithâskiwina.”
ᐋᒋᒧᐢᑕᐏᐣ: ᑭᐱᐦᑐᐑᐏᐣ ᑲ ᓃᐦᑖᐏᑭᐦᑖᐤ ᑭᖭᐢᑭᐏᓇ᙮
Tell me stories: silence breeds lies.
