Malaika Finkelstein

Malaika Finkelstein was raised by the strange and fascinating barrel-monkeys of Folklandia. In 1996, when she was found by an anthropological surveying party, she could communicate only through dance. Since then, she has lived in San Francisco, where she has been dancing, teaching, and performing swing, learning to speak human language, and earning an MA in education.
