Solwata Kin is a podcast, produced by Talanoa, that highlights and celebrates Oceanic thought leaders. We will be speaking with academics, artists and educators from across Oceania, diaspora and on-Country, about their journey to becoming who they are. This podcast is an opportunity for you to learn more about the uniqueness of their journey and how their Oceanic identity is not only integral but is inseparable from their work.

Through responsive storytelling, we aim to highlight the ways our thought leaders have carved their own paths, uplifted their peoples and re-imagined the future of our Ocean.

Hosted by Talanoa’s creative director, Emele Ugavule, and associate educator Brandon Tacadena. Each episode unpacks how our guest’s identity as solwata kin is not only important, but inseparable from their work.
