Many moons ago, a lavish ceremony was held on your shores. There was feasting and dancing, of course, to celebrate the visit of neighboring people from across the waves. At the heart of this ritual, however, was a gift: the guests gave a fine necklace, while your delegation gave an exquisite bracelet. Now it is your people's turn to depart for distant shores, where it will now be your turn to give the necklace away. This powerful tradition renews your connection with other oceangoing peoples, but it comes at a cost. Will you continue the cycle of giving?
No leader can hold on to these sacred objects for too long. Money is no matter.
We cannot undertake the journey. The gift should be ours to keep.
