Yes.  Even before that, with three Shadow Children left, the OWO becomes 
confused because "there are so many of you now and so few of us".

But there's plenty of independent evidence.  The Shadow Children know of 
things that the Hillmen and Marshmen do not.  They know of starcrossers and 
the bending of spacetime; they can point out Sol in the sky.

What logic would there be in such a reversal?  The whole concept of 
shape-shifting aborigines fails if the aborigines do not look like humans. 
Everything else we are told (such as the knowledge I noted above) has to be 
thrown out.
