Gunargie O’Sullivan

Gunargie never sleeps. At any moment, you can find her with a cup of coffee in one hand and a pocket microphone recorder in the other. She knows that the only way for her to fight her demons is to break the silence, so when she isn’t working at her part-time jobs, helping Aisha with her homework, or hosting a friend in crisis, she spends all her time at the community radio station or digging for stories in the street. On air, she bravely addresses her own traumatic past by speaking out on the most critical yet invisible struggles facing her and her community. The violent legacy of Residential schools, Aboriginal child apprehension, and Indigenous land exploitation are but a few. Despite her ardent engagement to helping her people through this powerful media voice, caring for herself seems insurmountable.
