INTERVIEW WITH BUNNA LAWRIE, 'ON THE BRINK' RADIO WITH JEFF WEFFERSON, 17 OCTOBER 2015 (ucy.tv)
"In several previous worlds the majority have advanced their technology in this way, even beyond what we know today. The consequent violations against nature and fellow humans caused severe imbalances which were resolved in the form of war, social disintegration and natural catastrophe. As each world reached the brink of annihilation, there remained a small minority who had managed to live in nearly complete accord with the infinite plan, as implied in the name, Hopi. Toward the final stages they would find themselves beset with signs of disintegration within, as well as enticing offers and severe threats from without, aimed toward forcing them to join the rest of the world."

Many thanks to Mirning whale-dreaming elder, musician and environmental activist Bunna Lawrie, whose real first name is Ngumbunna, their name for the sperm whale! I first learned of Bunna in the Kim Kindersley film ‘Whale-dreamers’ that came out in 2007. The Mirning are First Nations Australians who live on the coast of South Australia and are uniquely both desert and ocean people with an extraordinary whale-dreaming-centred cosmology.
