A Tor.com Original
Author: Carolyn Ives Gilman
Carolyn Ives Gilman's Exile's End is a complex, sometimes uncomfortable examination of artifact repatriation and cultural appropriation.
An artifact of indescribable and irreplaceable beauty created by an "extinct" culture has been the basis of another culture's origin stories. The race who created the artifact has survived on a distant world and has sent a representative to reclaim it, throwing everything into question.
Inspired by the SF camp in Danzhai, China, which is co-hosted by the Future Administration Authority (FAA) and Wanda Group.
