Lost In The Generation

By Chantelle


Ali Cobby Eckermann is a yankunutjava

Kokatatha Kunga woman born on

Kaurna land in 1963, she was part of the

Stolen Generation she felt lost with the

People she was put with like her heart

Was not whole she only started looking for 

Family early 30s when she found her

Family she was whole again, she felt she

Had a purpose in life, she was healed by

The land and people she felt at home at

Peace now, she's a strong beautiful

Woman who writes poetry about our life

In general and the Stolen Generation.

She speaks from the heart and no one

Can take that from her.
