Lakun Mara Threads of Life: Sonya Rankine

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


A basket can hold many things: food, babies, burdens and secrets. And like a gathering up of 'all those shattered pieces' that have been taken, lost or forgotten, 4 a basket can also hold wisdom, love and lessons for a new remembering. 5 We recognise these fragments and threads, woven and connected through the origins, struggles, resistance and legacies of our ancestors.
