Nadia is a poet, writer, songstress and lover of plants, territories and peoples. She was born on a foggy morning on the coast of Ajachamen territory, Southern California. From a very young age, her dad taught her to observe the ocean and to be humble before entering the water. When she could swim well, he took her and her younger brother out into the big waves where they learned to not panic, dive deep, and relax if they got out too far. Nadia lives in Awaswas-Ohlone territory (Santa Cruz), California, where she is re/membering, re-membering, remembering.
