INTRODUCING CONSTELLATIONS: ROSABEL TAN
I come from a lost lineage of Peranakan wāhine – Peranakan translating to ‘my ancestors are from elsewhere, but my home is now here’. I think about this when I think about the Asian diaspora community here in Aotearoa, and what it means to tell our stories specifically from this place, as tangata tiriti, and to write and walk alongside the many communities that live in our country. The writers in this series are carvers of paths: they throw light into the murky unknown, drawing maps we didn’t think possible. Their work is fearless, messy, unpredictable, sharp. The maps they draw are of home.
