Thank you, vinaka vakalevu Daniel Satele and the team at
The Pantograph Punch

I really appreciate this interview that Samoan writer, Daniel Satele pursued with me. It’s the first time I’ve discussed my position and politics with another Pacific artist and writer working in Auckland, Aotearoa. His introductory words are really moving, and affirm to me why it’s so important to encourage Pacific artists and writers to make commentary, using their privileged position of Pacific insight, on other Pacific art makers and activity.
