Ki’ti’s Story, 75,000 BC, provides an opportunity to explore a unique view of Neanderthal life based on recent science. It’s a coming of age story in the succession of the People’s Wise One. More than that it is the story of a People who survived for hundreds of thousands of geologic years. Come walk with Neanderthals and explore a different time and place. Meet Wamumur, the Wise One, who recaptures love and learns a little too late that he pushes too hard as a teacher, as did his father before him; Totamu, the administrative head of the People, whose officious behaviors are accepted often with irritation but with the realization that she works for the good of the People; Ki’ti, the child whose childhood is cut short because she has been gifted with memory of the stories of the People, who is wise beyond her years in some respects and ignorant and willful in others; Nanichak-na, the individual recognized for hunter leadership who would be chief it they had one.
