The Photo Prompt

Here’s the picture. A story need only touch on it in some way.

My Inspiration

I saw this picture and thought how so many settlers historically considered the indigenous people to be “primitive.” This still happens today, unfortunately, and not just with settlers/conquerors.

The Story

Primitive Savages

by Ronda Del Boccio

Genre: Historical (say WHA-a-a-a-a-AATTT?

Word count: 100

“Grand One, I do not like those new people.” Jaia dances a stone across the water.

Lomo grunts. “They say I am primitive.”

Jaia grabs for her boot knife. “Who says this?”

“No.” Lomo rests his wrinkled hand over her smooth one. “Only raise a blade in defense or to free the spirit of our food.”

Jaia drops her gaze. “I am sorry.”

Lomo lifts her chin and waits for her to look into his eyes. “We must never change who we are, no matter what happens.” He grasps her shoulders. “Do you understand?”

“I surrender to the Wise Way.”
