She doesn't say exactly that.  What she says is that Easterners - what
*we* call humans - arrived first (except for the Serioli, who are
native) and were modified by the Jenoine into Dragaerans.  She doesn't
say explicitly "terrans", of course.

This also jibes with the Serioli calling Vlad "of the Old People" or
"People from the small invisible lights".
