Al Khadra

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.

Watch her here :
