Our guest poet this week is Laniyuk.
Laniyuk is a Larrakia, Kungarrakan and Gurindji poet, living in Melbourne/Naarm. She was recently awarded with the First Nations Writer’s Residency in the 2017 Noted Festival, and Overlands' Writers’ Residency in 2018. She is a contributor to the book, Colouring the Rainbow: Blak Queer and Trans Perspectives.
In the spirit of the theme of NAIDOC Week, "Because of her, We can", she talks about the strong and important women in her life, and the power of the arts in healing and imagining better futures.
