Author's Notes

This story grew out of my conviction that a place that was engineered for supporting hunter-gatherers would not stay free of squatters for long. So, how do people who live in such a brightly-colored environment keep from being captured by early Empire slavers and military recruiters? I started with the thought that they need camouflage--but who wants to wear long sleeves and pants in a rainforest? Thus the tattoos. But that, of course, is only one aspect of a culture that grew out of keeping the Empire's soldiers from catching you.
