Being a refugee is not a choice: Carina Hoang at TEDxPerth


Refugees are often marginalised, their humanity ignored as their stories go untold. In this remarkable and emotional talk, however, author and former refugee Carina Hoang discusses her experience as a “boat person”. It’s a powerful account that is impossible to ignore.


THE WAILING BONES OF KUKU ISLAND

The untold story of a Perth mother who must honour the dead by helping the living even if it means going to hell and back. In 1975, the fall of Saigon triggered an unprecedented Exodus of more than 2 million. Carina fled with her siblings in a wooden boat with 373 people. Storms, pirates and deprivation was the order of their days at sea. Their fate awaited them in an island jungle where wild dogs howled like wolves at night. Thirty years later, Carina is helping families back there as “a way of finding closure to fully get on with life”.
