Poets Sam Wagan Watson and Sigbjørn Skåden in conversation with host Anne-Marie Te Whiu

Reciprocity beats at the heart of Fair Trade, a unique project hosted by Red Room Poetry which offers Indigenous poets from so-called Australia and around the world to connect and poetically collaborate. We speak with two of Fair Trade's collaborators, Sam Wagan Watson and Sámi writer Sigbjørn Skåden, about their process, their work and the enduring benefits of engaging with each other's poetry digitally, as sovereign Indigenous peoples.
