Today we start our blog's suggestion, a post dedicated to one of our many voices on the map. We would like to start with the remote part of the planet, the amazing Australia. We suggest to listen to a new entry, poet Oodgeroo Noonuccal. Born in Redland City, Queensland you can enjoy two excerpt from "This is your life".
"Give me the sounds God made, so I love them all, wheter loud or low..."
"She was an indigenous writer and political activist, Oodgeroo Noonuccal, also known as Kath Walker, was one of the most progressive and well respected poets of her time. She was the first Aboriginal writer in history to release a book of verse. Her advocacy for Indigenous welfare reflected in her poetic form as she wrote from her perspective as an Aboriginal Australian woman. Her best known works include ‘Municipal Gum’ (1960) and ‘A Song of Hope’ (1960), along with her books The Dawn is at Hand: Poems (1966) and My People: A Kath Walker collection (1970)." (G.I.)
