Al Khadra is a well known, 70 year old, war poetess from the Western Sahara. She lives in Algerian desert the al-Auin camp.
Her poems are more inspiring than usual, not only because so little is said about the Sahrawi people but also because she is illiterate.
Al Khadra is a walking oral documentation of a 30 year old conflict.
