Dance of Sina by Kim Meredith / by Ahilapalapa Rands

Dance of Sina was written by Kim Meredith to celebrate her daughter Courtney’s 30th birthday. Courtney Sina Meredith is named after her maternal grandmother Rita Sina, who was herself named after her paternal grandmother Sina le Pua ( Sina the flower). 


Each woman followed a similar path, striving to break free from convention and push the boundaries. 
The poem is a chant, it calls out to Sina who continues to dance her way out through the genes, celebrating her courage and light.
