There is a whole conversation about shapechangers and sandwalker's people near the tale end of A Story, page127 in my copy, where the old wise one remembers the names of Atlantis and Gondwanaland and Sandwalker remembers that his mother had told him a story of how their appearance had been stolen - though perhaps the shadow children are just picking up psychic noise from the heavens, I feel like they are not that confused until the ratio shifts in favor of someone who thinks himself already a man and their knowledge no longer has enough weight to sway his subjective self perceptions from dominating the group norm ( the frame tale is already kind of swayed to his perspective even though it is third person)
