When and Where is Nuegua?

The New Genetic Woman Project or Nuegua, created by Sean Landesten, Alathea Radford, and Maria Alvarez Sepulveda (aka ‘Pink Tamale’) can be considered to have come into birth during the One Hour War of September 15 2110.   The project, later called the Nuegua Homeland, was the eleventh-hour attempt to create a new kind of human society, integrated into the desert ecology of northern Arizona, by the use of the Cactus Mothers.   Hidden away in the Christmas Mines near Superior Arizona, Nuegua successfully defeated the Sky Wanderers DNA-destructor weapons, only to find itself marooned on the Empty Earth.

The main story– the Summer People, can be said to begin sometime in August of 2528, although Nuegua was not actually discovered (long after it was abandoned) in August of 2578.

Nuegua. A world we engineered. A way of life we never imagined.
