Thanks to A.J. Carruthers for an enlightening month of blogs. This month our blogger is Natalie Harkin. Natalie Harkin is a Narungga woman from the Chester family in South Australia. She is an academic and activist-poet with an interest in the state’s colonial archives and Aboriginal family records. Her words have been installed and projected in exhibitions comprising text-object-video projection, including with the Unbound Collective, and her first poetry manuscript, Dirty Words, was published by Cordite Books in 2015.
