The short answer is “no”.
In the third (and final) part of the story, people will see parallels between the kloormari’s circumstances and those of many Native North Americans, but the overall intent of Kelvoo’s Testimonial is not to represent indigenous people for the following reasons.
Chapter 44: Back in the Village
“But Kahini,” I objected, “we are kloormari. We are defined by our language. Terran is such a limited, monophonic language. In kloormari, we can convey complicated ideas in a fraction of the time. The structure of our language develops our neural pathways in ways that are unique to us. Surely, if we lose our language, we are destined to lose our identity!”
Chapter 45: Homelands
I replied, “But K’tatmal, kloormari and human values are not the same! K’tolin didn’t understand that it was forbidden to be on a human’s land. In fact, I don’t understand the whole concept myself. Why is it that, in exchange for money, a being can have exclusive access to part of a planet? Beings can reproduce, but land cannot. What happens when all of the land is owned? What will be left for everyone else?”
