The DVD, “Introduction to Ki’ti’s Story, 75,000 BC: Then and Now in Southeast Asia" is the introduction for the novel.  Ki’ti’s  Story, 75,000 BC is the first novel in the Winds of Change series on the peopling of the Americas before the Ice Age. The DVD takes the viewer to Sumatra where two events, one contemporary and one long ago occurred side-by-side. One is the ancient eruption of the supervolcano, Mt. Toba, and the other the contemporary tsunami at Banda Aceh. Both are due to their location at a very fractured part of the earth where many subduction zones converge. They share the same root cause. There's a comparison for the viewer of the size of Mt. Toba to our geologic contemporary Mt. St. Helens and the Yellowstone supervolcanoes. The DVD discusses the ancient people in KI'ti's Story--Neanderthals, Homo erectus, Cro-magnons, and Denisovans. It deals with the speculations and theories about these people and their arrival in the Americas. The DVD shows the lake where the people in the novel fish and two of the fish they caught in 75,000 BC. Those fish species are still living, but are critically endangered. It shows where the fish now exist. There is a strange geologic feature called in the book the land where the giants played images of which are on the DVD. The animals in the area in 75,000 BC appear. Included also is some speculation of culture based on what's known, as well as the author's overarching views of the Mt. Toba’s bringing on a time of peace among people and the Ice Age of some 20,000 years ago as ushering in a time of war in which we still live.
