If the virtual realm is land-based, can it return us back to country?
Can we transcend the limits of all physical experience and knowledge to seek sovereignty within the virtual?
This research project seeks to interrogate the potentiality of how land-based practices such as walking 'on country' can inform a virtual space where Anaiwan sovereignty can exist and, in turn, provide safety and healing to the Anaiwan community from colonial harm. This research is an extension of my grandmother Patsy Cohen's research into country and kinship on Anaiwan lands in her seminal text Ingelba & the Five Black Matriarchs.
