Description Commissioned by the Albuquerque Wind Quintet, with a story by Penny Raife Durant. Author Penny Durant (whose son was in the boy choir I conducted—Adam recorded the part of Aki in the version on the Albuquerque Boy Choir’s CD, “One of the Family.”) allowed me to use her story about a boy not quite old enough to go on the hunt, whose wits helped the women, children and elderly of his pueblo survive marauders while the men were away. Though the ancient Puebloans did not always record events with their petroglyphs, there are panels of glyphs that some historians believe may tell such a story.
