THE SOUND & THE SILENCE.

 

Māori women's voices in the landscape: an ongoing reference list.

Searching for a soundtrack: due to a lack of reference material regarding Māori women nature writers, photographers & filmmakers, I am making a list of found work. The voices of Māori women are heard most in the composition of waitata (song) this is my starting point.

Nature Books/ Writings:

He wai: A Song - First Nation's Women's writing. A Waiata Koa Collection. Ed. Trixie Te Arama Menzies. 

Nature Photographers:

Nature Filmmakers/ Documentarians: 

Other Indigenous writers: 

* Finding my Climate Conscious Tribe: Black Nature Lovers & writers by Kim-Marie Walker.

* 'Braiding Sweetgrass' -by Robin Wall Kimmerer .
