    "The title Unwashed doesn't mean 'dirty' or 'unclean'. It is a term for reconciliation in that friendship comes without first washing hands or being something other than is expected. It speaks against stereotyping.

    No bleaching required to get rid of the 'germs'. In other words true friendship is about accepting one another as they are: clean slate, no preconceived notions. Accepted for whatever they may have been or may be. It doesn't really matter. It's called 'getting on with the job'.

    Hands reach out and clasp in immediate friendship and then the story telling, the empathy begins, and a new path is laid out to tread.

    This is Treaty: path to self determination and self empowerment because at that accepted level of non-judgement two cultures can stay strong for culture and family; sharing all kinds of wondrous things about getting down and living life."
