'Samia Goudie grew up with an adopted family; she is from the Bundjalung and Munaldjali nations, and also of unknown European descent. She has lived mostly on the east coast of NSW and Queensland. Her life has also been influenced by a strong relationship with the people of 'Turtle Island' (North America), where she spent several years living in the high desert country of New Mexico. She left home early and worked as crew on a small catamaran and sailed to India whilst still a teenager. This adventure birthed a passion and interest in other cultures and people, and a love affair with saltwater that continues today.' As a Senior lecturer in Aboriginal and /or Torres Strait Islander health at the ANU Medical school. She has been a recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship and has a passion for writing, making films, telling stories and using new media in art exhibitions and installations. Samia finds great solace in being on country, with the ocean, rivers, lands and trees. Much of her writing, film and art capture memory and dreams as well as having a political response to the treatment of Aboriginal peoples through her own experiences. Samia has had academic and non-academic works published and displayed. Source: Southerly 71.2, p. 246; per.comm Kerry Reed-Gilbert, 2016
